Message Passing with MPI
Message Passing is presently the most widely deployed programming model in massively parallel high performance computing. Message passing is suitable for programming a wide range of current computer architectures, ranging from multi-core desk top equipment to the fastest HPC systems in the world, offering several hundred thousand processing elements.
The course is at the beginners level and assumes no prior experience in parallel computing. The concepts behind message passing and distributed memory computing will be introduced and the syntax of the key MPI calls will be explained. The course will include point-to-point communications, non-blocking communication and the collective communications calls. Practical sessions to deepen the understanding of the lectures will be part of the course. At the end of the course participants should be able to write their own MPI programs at an intermediate level. The teaching language will be English.
The course forms part of the SNIC effort in application support. It is open to users from all six SNIC HPC centres.
Participants should be able to write simple programs in either of C or Fortran.
Joachim Hein is a researcher in the centre of Mathematical Sciences at Lund University and the SNIC parallel expert based at Lunarc, the center for scientific and technical computing for research at Lund University. He is computing architect at EPCC at The University of Edinburgh in Scotland and has more than 16 years experience in parallel computing.
