ParallelProduct
evaluates the multiple product in parallel.
  • ParallelProduct is a parallel version of Product, which automatically distributes partial multiplications among different kernels and processors.
Calculations with vastly differing runtimes should be parallelized as finely as possible:
A large number of simple calculations should be distributed into as few batches as possible:
By default, definitions in the current context are distributed automatically:
Do not distribute any definitions of functions:
Distribute definitions for all symbols in all contexts appearing in a parallel computation:
Distribute only definitions in the given contexts:
Restore the value of the DistributedContexts option to its default:
Sums with trivial terms may be slower in parallel than sequentially:
Splitting the computation into as few pieces as possible decreases the parallel overhead:
