In the process of starting as a new employee in the MPI group I came across quite a few abbreviations and acronyms in the source and documentation. This is my attempt to document and clarify them. If you come across terms that are not listed here, please add them; this is a wiki! If you know what one of the undefined terms or prefixes below means, please contribute.
