Documentation and Additional Material

The following tutorial is the suggested base of our course: PACS Introduction to MPI Course. You can sign up to the online version and browse, take self tests, etc.

A complete reference of the MPI library standard is available at NETLIB.

A useful short summary of the syntax and use of each MPI command can be accessed here.

The user guides for SCALAPACK and BLACS are also available at NETLIB.
