 Non-Blocking Collective Operations for MPI-2

(Vol , Nr. , In , presented in Bloomington, IN, USA, pages , School of Informatics, ISSN: , ISBN: , Aug. 2006)


We propose new non-blocking interfaces for the collective group communication functions defined in MPI-1 and MPI-2. This document is meant as a standard extension and written in the same way as the MPI standards. It covers the MPI-API as well as the semantics of the new operations.
