Boost MPI Python wrappers

Project description

Note I’ve mostly discontinued maintenance of this package. It turns out mpi4py is a far better and more capable MPI wrapper. In the medium to short term, I would suggest switching any code depending on boostmpi to mpi4py.

boostmpi is a high-quality Python wrapper around the

Message Passing Interface (MPI). MPI is a standardized interface to libraries such as OpenMPI and MPICH that provide high-performance inter-process communication for distributed-memory computing.

boostmpi uses the Boost.MPI library, which gives MPI a very usable C++ interface. This C++ interface is then made accessible to Python via the Boost.Python library.

boostmpi was originally distributed as part of the Boost C++ library. This separate distribution aims to make the software more accessible.

boostmpi (born as Boost.MPI.Python) was written by Doug Gregor and is currently maintained by Andreas Kloeckner
