# FSU_2010_PARFOR Parallel MATLAB at FSU: Parallel FOR Loops

These slides are part of the presentation materials for a lecture on parallel MATLAB, as implemented on the computer cluster at Florida State University's Department of Scientific Computing. The lecture was presented on 12 April 2010.

A PDF version is available as ../../presentations/fsu_2010_parfor.pdf.

The files used for this presentation include

• compute.m, a MATLAB function, part of the MD program, which computes interparticle forces.
• fsu_2010_parfor.tex, "Parallel MATLAB at FSU: PARFOR and Local Parallel Programming".
• integrate.m, a MATLAB function which estimates the integral of a function f(x); it is to be converted into a parallel program using PARFOR.
• local_matlab.png, an image that suggests the system of local workers available on a desktop machine.
• md_profile.pdf, the performance report returned by MATLAB's profile command for the MD program.
• md_speedup.png, a plot of the speedup in execution time for a parallel version of the MD program.
• ode_sweep_display.m, a MATLAB function which plots the data computed by ode_sweep_parfor.
• ode_sweep_parfor.m, a MATLAB function which evaluates the maximum value of the solution of an ODE for a given set of parameters.
• ode_sweep_parfor.png, an image of a plot of the maximum solution values over a range of two parameters.
• parallel_matlab.png, an image that suggests the system of local and remote workers available to a user via the Distributed Compute Server.
• prime_number.m, a MATLAB function to count the number of primes less than or equal to N.
• prime_number.png, an image that suggests the prime number sieve.
• prime_number_parallel.m, a parallel MATLAB function to count the number of primes less than or equal to N.
• prime_number_parallel_run.m, interactive commands to run the parallel version of the prime number function.
• prime_number_script.m, a version of the prime number function rewritten as a script.
• spring_mass.png, an image of a spring-mass system.
