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.

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