SEM (Supercomputing Engine for Mathematica), a new application 
package for gridMathematica and Mathematica Personal Grid 
Edition, is now available.

Key Features
* Supports MPI specification
* Runs Mathematica symbolic manipulation across a cluster, as 
cluster computing handles more than numerics
* Drastically reduces execution time for Mathematica algorithms 
(up to 8 times faster on a single 8-CPU mode and up to 32 times 
faster on a cluster of four 8-CPU nodes)
* Maximizes resource utilization in multi-CPU machines
* Performs symbolic manipulations across a cluster
* Employs a distributed memory model for using the RAM of the 
entire cluster to run memory-consuming applications

Developed by Advanced Cluster Systems, LLC, and Dauger Research, 
Inc., SEM requires gridMathematica 2.2 or Mathematica Personal 
Grid Edition 6 and is available for Mac OS X 10.4.11 and up.
