Message Passing Interface

MPI is a library specification for message-passing, defined by a broadly based committee of vendors, implementors, and users. It was designed for high performance on both massively parallel machines and on workstation clusters. The MPI standard was released in 1994 and revised in 1995, and implementations are widely available, both freely and vendor-supplied. In 1997 the MPI-2 standard was released, which defines of a set of extensions to the original MPI standard.
