For users with a heterogeneous network of computers with a common file system and a problem that lend itself to parallelization these functions might be of help. Such problems may be finite difference calculations of gradients, parametric studies or iterative solutions of equation systems. Say, for instance, that you have 20 large eigenvalue problems that you want to solve in parallel.

Then the code is:

A=rand(500,500,20);% Generate 20 500x500 matrices
d=paralize('eig',A);% Solve with eig in parallel

It is as simple as that, provided you have started the servers. Servers are started with the MATLAB command serve. Could it be more easy?

Version Published Release Notes

This old contribution (from 1997) needed an overhaul. It now supports versions of Matlab up to 7.2 thanks to my soulmate Andrzej Karbowski, Warsaw.
Some bugfixes were also made.
