    Thanks for your comments, John! :-)

    Hi Anonymous. No, there is no current proposal in front of the MPI Forum for a lambda-calculus-based type of model. Do you have some ideas that could turned into a proposal to be presented?

    • It would be wonderful (and useful) if "lambda-calculus-based" type model be used to for applications requiring sparse matrices in parallel.

  1. Hi Jeff, will there be an adoption of the functional (lambda-calculus) programming model for MPI 3.1?

    Yes, that sounds like a great idea -- I'll write about this soon.

  2. Hi Jeff, could you made a blog post about how the MPI standard specifies constants, or, e.g., the actual type of "magic" like MPI_DATATYPE? I'm in particular interested in what does the standard guarantees, and what problems this introduces for e.g. those trying to write wrappers to the MPI C interface for other languages like Rust, Python, Julia,... For example, one typically needs a wrapper for each implementation, which complicates things in typed languages like Rust or Haskell. Does the committee see this as a problem? Is there a plan to make it easier to use current MPI implementations from other languages? (E.g. having a single ABI at least per platform). I would love to hear your thoughts about this. Best regards
