SkelCL is a high level multi GPU skeleton library developed at the university of Münster, Germany.
This document describes SkelCL a multi-GPU skeleton library based on OpenCL. It is actively developed at the University of Münster, Germany, by Michel Steuwer and others.

Most of the functionality is explained in multiple peer-reviewed publications and in detail in a diploma thesis with the title: "Developing a Portable Multi-GPU Skeleton Library".
Two key abstractions are made in this library: algorithmic skeletons and a unified memory abstraction. This also reflects in the classes described here. The Skeleton class and subclasses describe calculations performed on a GPU. The Container classes, like Vector provides a unified memory management for CPU and GPU memory.
The following example shows a full functional SkelCL program. The dot product of two vectors is calculated. The Zip skeleton combines two vectors element-wise. The Reduce skeleton reduces all elements of a vector to a single value.
