Speaker: Haim Ricas, M.Sc Applied MathematicaGeneral Manager Tashtit Scientific Consultants LtdWolfram Research Distributors in IsraelAbstract: gridMathematica implements many parallel programming primitives and includes high-level commands for parallel execution of matrix operations, plotting, and other functions. It comes with sample applications of many popular new programming approaches, such as parallel Monte Carlo simulation, visualization, searching, and optimization. The implementations for all high-level parallel processing commands are provided in Mathematica source form, so they can also serve as templates for users to build their own parallel programs.At the meeting I'll present a general overview, I'll demonstrate powerful examples and I'll discuss main k…
