Note: Parallel Computing Toolkit was replaced by added functionality in the Wolfram Language and Mathematica, starting with Version 7, and is no longer available as a separate application package. Archival documentation »

Parallel Computing Toolkit brings parallel computation to anyone having access to more then one computer on a network or anyone working on multiprocessor machines. It implements many parallel programming primitives and includes high-level commands for parallel execution of operations such as animation, plotting, and matrix manipulation.

Also supported are many popular new programming approaches such as parallel Monte Carlo simulation, visualization, searching, and optimization. The implementations for all high-level commands in Parallel Computing Toolkit are provided in Mathematica source form, so they can serve as templates for building additional parallel programs.
