I am wondering if anyone has any knowlege about whether Mathematica (particularly version 3) has any inherent capability to take advantage of multiple processors on machines which have them -- other than the obvious case of running two completely separate Mathematica sessions on the two CPU's. I will be receiving a pentium-pro machine which is dual- processor capable and it would be nice to know if a second processor would provide any speed improvement. If there is no inherent capability, perhaps there is a way to link two kernels together to provide some parallelism?? Appologies if this question has already been asked; our news server only keeps articles for seven days. Thanks in advance for any info. David, groskyd at tsc.tdk.com
