M245: Parallel Computation

This one-day course covers the use of the Parallel Computing Toolkit for developing parallel programs in Mathematica and provides practical, hands-on exercises to give the student concrete examples. This course is intended for Mathematica users who want to develop programs for solving problems in parallel on multiprocessor machines, networks of workstations, or dedicated computing grids.


Introduction: prerequisites for parallel computation with Mathematica, installation issues of Parallel Computing Toolkit and gridMathematica, and basic remote and parallel evaluations

Parallel Evaluation: coarse-grain parallelism, process initialization, debugging, and performance measurements

Concurrency and Scheduling: virtual shared memory and synchronization

Applications: examples and practical tips

All Wolfram Education Group offerings are "hands-on" interactive courses and are taught by certified instructors in a professional computer classroom environment.
