Determines process rank in communicator given Cartesian location
int MPI_Cart_rank(MPI_Comm comm, const int coords, int *rank)
- communicator with cartesian structure (handle)
- integer array (of size ndims, the number of dimensions of
the Cartesian topology associated with comm) specifying the cartesian
coordinates of a process
- rank of specified process (integer)
Out-of-range coordinates are erroneous for non-periodic dimensions.
Versions of MPICH before 1.2.2 returned MPI_PROC_NULL for the rank in this
Thread and Interrupt Safety
This routine is both thread- and interrupt-safe.
This means that this routine may safely be used by multiple threads and
from within a signal handler.
Notes for Fortran
All MPI routines in Fortran (except for MPI_WTIME and MPI_WTICK) have
an additional argument ierr at the end of the argument list. ierr
is an integer and has the same meaning as the return value of the routine
in C. In Fortran, MPI routines are subroutines, and are invoked with the
All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype, MPI_Comm) are of type INTEGER
All MPI routines (except MPI_Wtime and MPI_Wtick) return an error value;
C routines as the value of the function and Fortran routines in the last
argument. Before the value is returned, the current MPI error handler is
called. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job. The error handler
may be changed with MPI_Comm_set_errhandler (for communicators),
MPI_File_set_errhandler (for files), and MPI_Win_set_errhandler (for
RMA windows). The MPI-1 routine MPI_Errhandler_set may be used but
its use is deprecated. The predefined error handler
MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error values to be returned.
Note that MPI does not guarentee that an MPI program can continue past
an error; however, MPI implementations will attempt to continue whenever
- No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
- Invalid topology. Either there is no topology
associated with this communicator, or it is not the correct type (e.g.,
MPI_CART when expecting MPI_GRAPH).
- Invalid source or destination rank. Ranks must be between
zero and the size of the communicator minus one; ranks in a receive
(MPI_Recv, MPI_Irecv, MPI_Sendrecv, etc.) may also be MPI_ANY_SOURCE.
- Invalid argument. Some argument is invalid and is not
identified by a specific error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK).
