Bibliotheken zur Entwicklung paralleler Algorithmen

By G. Haase, T. Hommel, A. Meyer and M. Pester


The purpose of this paper is to supply a summary of library subroutines and functions for parallel MIMD computers. The subroutines have been developed at the University of Chemnitz during a period of the last five years. In detail, they are concerned with vector operations, inter-processor communication and simple graphic output to workstations. One of the most valuable features is the machine-independence of the communication subroutines proposed in this paper for a hypercube topology of the parallel processors (excepting a kernel of only two primitive system-dependend operations). They were implemented and tested for different hardware and operating systems including transputer, nCube, KSR, PVM. The vector subroutines are optimized by the use of C language and enrolled loops (BLAS1-like). The paper includes hints for using the libraries with both Fortran and C programs
