Abstract : Programming non-embarrassingly parallel scientific computing applications such as those involving the numerical resolution of system of PDEs using mesh based methods for grid computing environments is a complex and important issue. This work contributes to this goal by proposing some MPI extensions to let programmers deal with the hierarchical nature of the grid infrastructure thanks to a tree representation of the processes as well as the corresponding extension of collective and point-to-point operations. It leads in particular to support N M communications with transparent data redistribution.
