MATLAB Parallel Computing Toolbox (Hands-on)

The MATLAB Parallel Computing Toolbox allows you to write programs that leverage multi-core processors, GPUs, and computer clusters by dividing up work between independent cores. Converting serial MATLAB applications to parallel MATLAB applications usually requires few code modifications and no programming in a low-level language. This tutorial will introduce MATLAB parallel processing tools, such as parfor, spmd, and distributed array types.  The skills you learn should enable you to solve bigger problems faster using MATLAB.

Basic knowledge of MATLAB is assumed.
