SAL Home PARALLEL Communication Libraries


MP (Multi Protocol) is a protocol for the efficient exchange of mathematical data. The Multi Project is an ongoing research effort at Kent State University aimed at providing a framework for distributed scientific computing. An integral part of this framework is the Multi Protocol which is designed to support efficient communication of mathematical data between scientifically-oriented software packages. MP exchanges data in the form of linearized annotated syntax trees. Syntax trees provide a simple, flexible and application-independent way to represent and exchange data, and annotations provide a powerful and generic expressive facility for transmitting additional information. MP is available as a C library.
