mpbi-mpi - parallel (MPI) version of mpbi


This manual page documents briefly the mpb-mpi and mpbi-mpi commands. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original programs don't have a manual page.

mpb-mpi is a version of mpb built with MPI support through the mpich implementation. It can be run over a computer cluster to achieve distributed computations.

mpbi-mpi is equivalent to mpb-mpi but requires, like mpbi, photonic structures respecting inversion symmetry.




mpbi was written by Steven G. Johnson <>. This manual page was written by Josselin Mouette <>, for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
