7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By A mathematically-oriented reader on September 13, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent introduction to programming with the MPI. It gradually introduces concepts from the simple to the complex. This is done with examples that illustrate the use of different techniques. The examples include the code to implement them. The programming examples alternate between Fortran 90, C, and C++. However, after giving the example in one language, the bindings for the MPI functions in the other two languages are presented. In addition, the programming examples in either language are easily understood. Although my first choice of programming language is Fortran (and I have very basic knowledge or C), I was able to follow the examples in C and C++ and to write their equivalents in Fortran so I could test them on our computers.

I bought this book for a course on Parallel Computing for which we did some basic MPI programming. This book was useful to a great extent in describing the syntax of the MPI routines as well as in providing ample examples. To my knowledge, it doesn't contain advanced MPI concepts but it is good in explaining the basics of MPI if you are a beginner.

I think this is a great book. I think it really helps to read a book like this when learning MPI. I've found I'm taking a few approaches that are not emphasized in the book - for example using the 'v' functions like Scatterv, Gatherv, although they are mentioned in the book, I could use examples that make use of them, and other functions that are mentioned. Also some MPI 3.0 functions are not mentioned, and my understanding is the C++ MPI bindings, which the book uses a substantial amount of space to cover, have been deprecated, so yes, I really like it, but I would update it, or get the MPI 3.0 standard doc for $25 as well, or the free pdf that the committee makes, to get a more complete MPI reference.
