Message Passing Interface is a highly successful, universal API standard for distributed memory parallel programming. Used in applications scaling to thousands of processors, MPI may appear daunting. This course will cover basic principles of message passing, move on to MPI environment functions, and continue with blocking and non-blocking point-to-point communications. After producing MPI routines to write functional parallel programs, we will proceed to cover the more elaborate topics of collective communications, derived datatypes, process topologies, and groups, contexts and communicators. We will also discuss MPI language binding issues, cover the profiling interface, and explain the MPI runtime. MPI-2 issues will be covered briefly.
