## [MPI] Calculating integral in parallel

Problem: write a programme to calculate the integral with MPI:

Actually, the programme must be able to calculate any integral. But before writing a parallel programme, we should write a serial one to make sure it works and the algorithm is correct.

There are plenty of algorithms for calculating integrals. One of the most advanced (efficient), among non-parallel, is the method of local stack. Read more of this post

## [MPI] Solving the advection equation in parallel

In chemistry, engineering and earth sciences, advection is a transport mechanism of a substance or conserved property by a fluid due to the fluid’s bulk motion. $\frac{\partial\psi}{\partial t}+\nabla\cdot\left(\psi{\bold u}\right)=0$

In my course on Parallel programming, I had to implement a solution to a particular advection equation, with  the initial and boundary conditions defined. Read more of this post

## MPI: Calculating sum 1/n! in parallel

Hello.
I’ve spend several hours to understand how to programme in MPI and how to calculate the sum of 1/n! in parallel (it’s my task from university). (By the way, why do I have study this shit? I don’t think I will be working in the field of parallel/distributed computing.)

But finally I wrote a decent programme, which showed not bad results. And I am very excited to share with you! Read more of this post

## How to install MPI in Ubuntu

I am starting a series of articles devoted to distributed computing that we are now studying at MIPT. For programming we will use MPI.

Message Passing Interface (MPI) is a standardized and portable message-passing system designed by a group of researchers from academia and industry to function on a wide variety of parallel computers. The standard defines the syntax and semantics of a core of library routines useful to a wide range of users writing portable message-passing programs. We can use it for creating programmes for distributed computing systems (parallel computing).
