Wolfram Research Releases gridMathematica 2 and Parallel
Computing Toolkit 2

Wolfram Research announces the release of both Parallel
Computing Toolkit 2 and gridMathematica 2, an optimized parallel
Mathematica environment for multiprocessor machines, clusters,
grids, and supercomputers.

Parallel Computing Toolkit 2 is a versatile parallel computing
solution for anyone with access to more than one processor.
Compatible with Mathematica 5.1 and also a major component of
gridMathematica 2, this Mathematica application package enables
you to tackle large-scale problems and build platform-
independent parallel programs with your existing Mathematica

Major new features and enhancements in Parallel Computing
Toolkit 2 include:

*  Improved configuration of remote Mathematica kernels
*  Additional automatic parallelization
*  Better load balancing based on relative processor speeds and
   communication latencies
*  Programmable scheduling for easy problem-specific
*  Enhanced support for tracing and debugging
*  Support for speculative parallelization
*  Seamless execution on scalar and parallel setup

gridMathematica 2 provides all of these enhancements as well as
universal database connectivity, web services support,
high-speed binary I/O, industrial-strength string manipulation,
and full optimization for all 64-bit architectures.

gridMathematica lets you easily develop powerful parallel
applications on a PC and deploy them seamlessly on any grid or
supercomputer. It is perfectly suited for numerical
supercomputing applications as well as parallel processing of
complex non-numeric data such as images, 2D and 3D vector
graphics, geospatial information, genomic sequences, algebraic
formulas, logical and program constructs, and general symbolic

Both Parallel Computing Toolkit 2 and gridMathematica 2 are
available for all common Linux and Unix systems, Windows, and
Mac OS X. More product details can be found at
