# Family of Graph and Hypergraph Partitioning Software

METIS - Serial Graph Partitioning and Fill-reducing Matrix Ordering |
---|

METIS stable version: 5.1.0, 3/30/2013; MT-METIS initial version: 0.1, 5/21/2013
METIS is a set of serial programs for partitioning graphs, partitioning finite element meshes, and producing fill reducing orderings for sparse matrices. The algorithms implemented in METIS are based on the multilevel recursive-bisection, multilevel |

ParMETIS - Parallel Graph Partitioning and Fill-reducing Matrix Ordering |
---|

Current stable version: 4.0.3, 3/30/2013
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 simulations. The algorithms implemented in ParMETIS are based on the parallel multilevel |

hMETIS - Hypergraph & Circuit Partitioning |
---|

Current version: 1.5.3, 11/22/98 [Alpha version: 2.0pre1, 5/24/07]
hMETIS is a set of programs for partitioning hypergraphs such as those corresponding to VLSI circuits. The algorithms implemented by hMETIS are based on the multilevel hypergraph partitioning schemes developed in our lab. |
