Recent surveys have shown that over 6.8 billion mobile phones are in use today where roughly 50% are running the Android Operating System. This large population of devices can be utilized for message-passing interface (MPI) computing. There have been few examples of this in practice due to the complexity of installation and lack of functionality. However, I propose a new framework which permits client devices to dynamically join and leave an MPI-based network without drastically affecting its performance. It uses the MPICH2 library to execute processes and pass messages between the devices. Unlike the previous implementations, this framework uses Java (in the form of an Android application) to perform the initialization steps and execution of MPICH. As a result, the purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the feasibility of implementing the framework as an independent library.
