PRIME_MPI a C++ code which counts the number of primes between 1 and N, using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) to carry out the calculation in parallel.
The algorithm is completely naive. For each integer I, it simply checks whether any smaller J evenly divides it. The total amount of work for a given N is thus roughly proportional to 1/2*N^2.
This program is mainly a starting point for investigations into parallelization.
The latest versions of MPI no longer support the special C++ MPI bindings, so the examples given here have reverted to using the C MPI bindings.
