Collective Communications

In the previous section we described the Adlib communication implementation issues with a characteristic collective operation example, remap(). In this section we will overview functionalities of all collective operations in Adlib. The Adlib has three main families of collective operation: regular communications, reduction operations, and irregular communications. We discuss usage and high-level API overview of Adlib methods. Complete APIs of Adlib are described in Appendix A.
