Besides your link I would recommend: is the official standard web page for one implementation (done by the Indiana
group that also contributed many Boost libraries) for the latest efforts for an open-source
high-performance MPI library

as well as any of the many books on MPI. Alternatively you could
attend the short MPI course that I will teach on Friday in Zurich,
