Modeling and Simulation Techniques for Unmanned Vehicle System Research and Development




Using the Maple Grid Computing Toolbox to Push Computational Boundaries:
Run computations in parallel, enabling applications.

Date: Wednesday, March 30th, 2011
Time: 1:00pm – 2:30pm EST


The Maple Grid Computing Toolbox, combined with Microsoft® Windows® HPC Server 2008 R2, provides researchers with a powerful tool for their demanding computations. In this webinar, you will learn how one researcher used these products in an attempt to compute a record number of digits of a famous constant from number theory. His path of mathematical research led to a number of interesting discoveries, and ultimately advanced the computing power of a popular computer algebra system. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to see how easy it is develop and test your applications locally using the Maple Grid Computing Toolbox and then deploy them to your Windows HPC Server.

The Maple Grid Computing Toolbox enables you to run Maple computations in parallel, taking advantage of all your hardware resources, helping to cut down on processing time.

  • Access to all the computational power of Maple, including high-level commands for defining parallel computations
  • Extremely easy to set up, connecting directly into your Windows HPC Server cluster without the need to set up services on each node
  • Allows you to develop and test parallel applications on your desktop computer before deploying them on the grid.
  • Handle problems that are not tractable on a single machine because of memory limitations or because it would simply take too long
  • Integration with Microsoft Windows HPC Server, including Windows HPC Server 2008 R2
  • Standard MPI message passing on Windows HPC Server, for efficient communication and integration with tools that support this protocol
