MULTITASK_MPI is a C program which demonstrates how to "multitask", that is, to execute several unrelated and distinct tasks simultaneously, using MPI for parallel execution.
In this example, there is a "master" process, identified as process 0, and two worker processes, 1 and 2. Process 0 does nothing but choose the input for the worker processes, transmit it, and wait for the computed results to be returned. The programs executed by process 1 and by process 2 are quite different.
While the typical MPI model has all the worker processes executing the same program, this example shows that that is not necessary.

RANDOM_MPI, a C program which demonstrates one way to generate the same sequence of random numbers for both sequential execution and parallel execution under MPI.
RING_MPI, a C program which uses the MPI parallel programming environment, and measures the time necessary to copy a set of data around a ring of processes.
SATISFY_MPI, a C program which demonstrates, for a particular circuit, an exhaustive search for solutions of the circuit satisfiability problem, using MPI to carry out the calculation in parallel.
SEARCH_MPI, a C program which searches integers between A and B for a value J such that F(J) = C, using MPI.
WAVE_MPI, a C program which uses finite differences and MPI to estimate a solution to the wave equation.
MULTITASK_FSU compiles and runs the program on the FSU HPC cluster.
MULTITASK_LOCAL compiles and runs the program on the local system, which might work if OpenMPI is installed, and which might make sense if your system has multiple cores.
