This version of MUMPS is provided to you free of charge. It is public domain, based on public domain software developed during the Esprit IV European project PARASOL (1996-1999). Since this first public domain version in 1999, research and developments have been supported by the following institutions: CERFACS, CNRS, ENS Lyon, INPT(ENSEEIHT)-IRIT, INRIA, and University of Bordeaux. Part of MUMPS related work has been funded by the following contracts: contracts with Samtech S.A. (2005-2006, 2008-2010); contract with CNES-CERFACS (2005), ANR project SOLSTICE ANR-06-CIS6-010 (2007-2009) labelled by A.E.S.E (Aerospace Vallée) competitivity pole; France-Berkeley projects (1999-2000 and 2008-2009); France-Israel technological cooperation programs on Multicomputing: Multicore, Cluster and Grid (2009-2010); EDF grant for the PhD thesis of C. Weisbecker (2010-2012); contract with TOTAL-Hutchinson (2013), contract with ESI group (2013).
