Packed Array Technology
Wolfram Research, Inc.
Packed array technology provides an optimized structure for certain classes of
numerical expressions. This technology allows a valuable saving in the storage required
and also the use of specialized computation methods which offer significant speed
advantages. This talk will show how packed array technology is integrated with the system,
how it is generated, and how its use can be followed and monitored. The emphasis will be
on using it with Mathematica programming constructs rather than on its use in the
implementation of specific numerical algorithms.
