I'm curious how PAL ( differs from frameworks like OpenMP. What new does it offer?

The parallel programming aspect of PAL (load, open, close, read, write, etc) is meant to sit underneath things like OpenMP, MPI, and OpenCL. Think of it like a POSIX library for coprocessors and parallel machines.

The math API is not specific to any programming model, but does rely on the concept of worker team.

I will update the README...
