Hi everyone,

For my first question, I am looking for some help about the following. I have the opportunity to run a worksheet in parallel on a cluster of sixteen workstations, each one endowed with twelve CPUs, through the GRID Computing Toolbox. However, I have troubles concerning how to do that.

I join the worksheet at issue: The aim is to run large-scale numerical simulations of a dynamic system, depending on the values given to the initial conditions and to the parameters. The worksheet is organized in four execution groups:

  1. The required packages (combinat and LinearAlgebra).
  2. Calibration of the parameters and initial conditions.
  3. The system, which is embedded into a procedure called SIM.
  4. The activation of SIM, whose outputs are nine .mla files, each one being made of a real-number matrix.

The truth is, I do not clearly see how to modify the worksheet with some elements of the GRID package. Besides, the cluster operates under HTCondor so that running the worksheet requires beforehand the creation of a .sub file. This should be done in consistency with the aforesaid modification.

Any help is welcome, thanks a lot.

One of the most basic decisions a baseball manager has to make is how to arrange the batting order.  There are many heuristics and models for estimating the productivity of a given order.  My personal favourite is the use of simulation, but by far the most elegant solution from a mathematical perspective uses probability matrices and Markov chains.  An excellent treatment of this topic can be found in Dr. Joel S. Sokol's article,

While looking over some old Maple 9.5 applications I came across two applications requiring the HPC Grid computing toolbox for maple. 

Now that parallel computing is becoming the norm and parallel code tools are included with newer Maple versions.  Has this toolbox just been integrated into Maple?  or are they two totally different entities altogether.  I am sensing the toolbox is to deal with multiple computer systems as the parallel code tools...
