Overview

The Message Passing Interface (MPI) specification is widely used for solving significant scientific and engineering problems on parallel computers. There exist more than a dozen implementations on computer platforms ranging from IBM SP-2 supercomputers to clusters of PCs running Windows NT or Linux ("Beowulf" machines).

The initial MPI Standard document, MPI-1, was recently updated by the MPI Forum. The new version, MPI-2, contains both significant enhancements to the existing MPI core and new features.Using MPI is a completely up-to-date version of the authors' 1994 introduction to the core functions of MPI. It adds material on the new C++ and Fortran 90 bindings for MPI throughout the book. It contains greater discussion of datatype extents, the most frequently misunderstood feature of MPI-1, as well as material on the new extensions to basic MPI functionality added by the MPI-2 Forum in the area of MPI datatypes and collective operations.Using MPI-2 covers the new extensions to basic MPI. These include parallel I/O, remote memory access operations, and dynamic process management. The volume also includes material on tuning MPI applications for high performance on modern MPI implementations.

    Good Reference Guide for the new programmer

    The book was good guide for me in the perspective that it took me through all the steps needed to provide a complete interface between two computers. It gave the instructions both in language 'C' and Fortran and some in 'psuedo' code for the most complex instructions. Anyone with some computer training could absorb what they had written including the history for 'buf' interest. Its goal was to provide a step by step insruction set to enable one computer to instruct another computer to calculate a program and return a response to the originator. Any method of communication could be used - serial port, printer port or any other communication sytem for that matter. The title is its intention which is what I wanted.
