ParMETIS is an MPI-based parallel library that implements a variety of
algorithms for partitioning unstructured graphs, meshes, and for computing
fill-reducing orderings of sparse matrices.
ParMETIS extends the functionality provided by METIS and includes routines that
are especially suited for parallel AMR computations and large scale numerical
The algorithms implemented in ParMETIS are based on the parallel multilevel
k-way graph-partitioning, adaptive repartitioning, and parallel
multi-constrained partitioning schemes developed in our lab.
