Expanding the Message Passing Library Model with Nested Parallelism

Authors: Rodriguez, C., Sande, F., León, C., Garcia, F.


A synchronous extension to the library model for message passing (Inmos C, PVM, Parmacs, MPI, etc.) is presented. This extension, provides a comfortable expression of nested parallelism from inside the message passing model. Furthermore of being a valuable tool for the presentation and teaching of parallel algorithms, the computational results prove that an efficiency similar to or even better than the one obtained designing and implementing algorithms using the native language can be achieved.
