This appendix defines the Adlib communication library. An overview of Adlib
was given in Chapter 5.
communication functions in Adlib take the form of collective
transformations on distributed arrays. These transformations are
implemented in terms of communication schedules. Each kind of
transformation has an associated class of schedules. Specific
instances of these schedules, involving particular data arrays and
particular parameters, are created as instances of the classes
concerned. Executing a schedule initiates the communications
required to perform the transformation. A single schedule may be
executed many times, repeating the same communication pattern.
