I'm running Mathematica 7.0.1 on a HP Compaq laptop with a 1.8 GHz Intel dual-core processor, 4 GB ram. OS = 32-bit Windows XP Pro. I'm using loops to solve a certain game for many data points which I later use to graph the experiment. Example code attached.
Problem: The code can take hours to run, but Mathematica only uses 1 core (i.e. CPU at 50%) while the other core and about 80% of the ram remain completely free.
How can I force Mathematica to use all available resources?
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I tried the code on another laptop with AMD dual-core; CPU use was 100% and in fact the machine froze until Mathematica finished.
P.P.S. I'm also working to optimize the code, but that's a separate issue.
