Hi everyone, I have a simulation in Mathematica. I want to run the simulation for 100 iterations, so I use Dynamic to monitor the progress of the simulation. Now the weird thing is that with some parameter values and some seed values everything is fine, but with other values Mathematica stops at some point. It is not possible to interrupt or abort the simulation. The only thing that I can do is to quit the kernel and restart Mathematica. Has anyone of you experienced this problem before? How can I solve this problem? The code is a bit lengthy but I don't think that there is a mistake in the code (since I get no error message). If anyone is interested in the code please let me know and I can post it. Thanks a lot! Matthias (Mathematica 7.0.1.0 on Max OS X 10.6.2)
