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 -- Alexei Boulbitch, Dr., Habil. Senior Scientist IEE S.A.
