New Input

We have added a new input routine which can be selected in the script file with the arguements remaining identical to the serial case (see Section 5.1 for details). This routine can be described by Algorithm 1.

Each process (including the master process) now reads data. Any partial z-planes read are sent to process $P+1$ along with a copy of the lowest z-plane which is necessary for the solver. The load balancing algorithm which is present in the serial case is not used as this would require complex re-distribution of the data once read.
