Multi-threading, Multi-core, and Parallel Calculation in Mathcad (part 2)

Check out the latest blog post for Mathcad written by Jakov Kucan, Mathcad's Director of Software Development at PTC. This blog is titled, "Multi-threading, Multi-core, and Parallel Calculation in Mathcad (part 2)" and walks you through linear algebra operations, parallelizing calculations of individual equations, takes you through an example, and explains how multi-threading, multi-core, and parallel calculations can be a benefit to you. Here is an excerpt:

"As discussed in the previous blog, Mathcad’s multi-threading option does not affect parallelization of individual equations. Here we discuss a different low-level mechanism to take advantage of the multi-core architectures.


Under the hood, Mathcad utilizes Intel® MKL (Math Kernel Library) which is optimized to take advantage of Intel®’s multi-core processors. So what does MKL do? At the high level it leverages different strategies to divide a problem into several sub-problems of smaller size, calculates these in parallel (allocating different processor cores to each sub-problem), and then combines the partial results into one."
