This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 4th European Parallel Virtual Machine and Message Passing Interface Users' Group Meeting, PVM/MPI '97, held in Cracow, Poland in November 1997.
Parallel Virtual Machine and Message Passing Interface are the most popular tools for programming in accordance with the message passing paradigm which, at present, is considered to be the best way to develop effective parallel programs.
The book presents 63 carefully selected papers covering the whole range of PVM/MPI issues. The papers are organized in sections on evaluation and performance, extensions and improvements, implementation, tools, algorithms, and applications in science and engineering.
