Data Parallelism
The functional and list-oriented characteristics of the core Mathematica language allow Mathematica to provide immediate built-in data parallelism, automatically distributing computations across available computers and processor cores.
Parallelize perform a computation using automatic parallelization
ParallelMap map a function in parallel over the elements of a list
ParallelTable generate a table in parallel
ParallelCombine evaluate expressions in parallel and combine their results
DistributeDefinitions distribute definitions needed for parallel computations
ParallelNeeds load a package into all parallel subkernels
Method how computations are distributed ("CoarsestGrained", "FinestGrained", ...)
