SAL Home PARALLEL Tools & Utilities


POOMA (Parallel Object-Oriented Methods and Applications) is an object-oriented framework for applications in computational science requiring high-performance parallel computers. It is a library of C++ classes designed to represent common abstractions in these applications.

Application programmers use and derive from these classes, which present a data-parallel programming interface at the highest abstraction layer. Lower, implementation layers encapsulate distribution and communication of data among processors. Codes developed on serial workstations port to all supported architectures, including parallel processors.
