MPI: The Complete Reference PDF Print E-mail

Author: Marc Snir, Steve Otto, Steven Huss-Lederman, David Walker and Jack Dongarra

This book serves as an annotated reference manual for MPI, and a complete specification of the standard is presented. The annotations mainly take the form of explaining why certain design choices were made, how users are meant to use the interface, and how MPI implementors should construct a version of MPI. Many detailed, illustrative programming examples are also given, with an eye toward illuminating the more advanced or subtle features of MPI.
