MATLAB Parallel Computing Toolbox is now available to Boston University’s MATLAB users. This toolbox enables users to solve computationally intensive and data intensive problems on multi‐cored personal computers, laptops, and especially the Katana Linux Cluster managed by the Scientific Computing and Visualization group of Information Services & Technology. Parallel processing operations such as parallel for‐loops, parallel numerical algorithms, and message‐passing functions let you implement task‐ and data‐parallel algorithms in MATLAB. Converting serial MATLAB applications to parallel MATLAB applications usually requires few code modifications and no programming in a low‐level language. The prerequisite for this course is a basic knowledge of MATLAB, either gotten on your own or from our "Introduction to MATLAB" tutorial. If you try to sign up for this tutorial and find that it is full, please send email to and we will do our best to accommodate you.
