Dear MatheGroup members,

I would like to put a trivial though an important question to you. For 
some time I try to find problems to be best solved*
using Mathematica, and where parallel computing would be necessary. So 
far I did not succeed in finding them. This tells
me that I do not understand something important. I would be grateful, if 
you could give few examples. Very frankly,
this my mail is not aimed to state a uselessness of parallelization. In 
contrast, I need few realistic examples to make my mind and
begin understanding, if I may need using a parallelization myself.

* Just to explain the point: molecular dynamics simulation for instance, 
often requires parallelization, but here Fortran
of C would be probably methods of choice, rather than Mathematica. In 
analytical calculations in contrast, Mathematica
 would be the method of choice, but in this case I do not see how 
parallelization may be benefited from.

It is evident how this my question is related to the M7 release.

Best regards, and thank you in advance, Alexei
