 Parallel computing toolbox from MathWorks to enable multicore computing

MathWorks has released a new version of Parallel Computing Toolbox that provides an improved distributed array construct to enable MATLAB users to directly access from a MATLAB session data that is stored on multicore computers or computer clusters.

Parallel Computing Toolbox used with two additional MathWorks toolboxes to accelerate specific algorithms on multiprocessing hardware without requiring to write or modify a single line of code.

Algorithms in Statistics Toolbox have been modified, including the bootstrap and cross-validation algorithms, which are resampling methods that require repeatedly evaluating statistical functions on multiple data samples. Similarly, algorithms in Communications Toolbox have been modified so that you can run computationally intensive simulations of error-rate performance models in parallel. These enhancements build on the existing set of toolbox algorithms that take advantage of parallel operations, such as those in Optimization Toolbox and Genetic Algorithm and Direct Search Toolbox.

In addition, key algorithms in Statistics Toolbox and Communications Toolbox execute fast when run in conjunction with Parallel Computing Toolbox.

"As hardware systems become more powerful, MATLAB users are increasingly presented with data-intensive problems that involve highly complex data sets," said Silvina Grad-Freilich, manager of parallel computing and application deployment marketing at The MathWorks. "By adding parallel computing capabilities to our products, users can more easily take advantage of the benefits of parallelized applications to operate their large data sets. And because users can remain in the MATLAB environment, the cost is small and their workflow is streamlined, leading to results sooner."
