*Mathematica* supports a number of commands for
parallel computation; these can run on modern multiprocessor machines,
clusters, grids, and supercomputers.

More information about parallel *Mathematica* can be found at
http://www.wolfram.com/products/mathematica/newin7/content/BuiltInParallelComputing/.

The Wolfram *Workbench* supports debugging
and profiling of parallel *Mathematica* applications.
The description here is for *Mathematica* 7 and higher.
(It is also possible to work with the older parallel tools based on
the *Parallel Computing Toolkit*.)
One feature of *Mathematica* parallel functionality is that it requires essentially
no special setup on each of the worker processors (subkernels). For example, all
the parallel application code is sent from the master kernel. This fits very
well into the *Workbench*, since all the code can be kept in a
project.
