SAL Home MATH Array-Oriented & Linear Algebra Systems


PLab (Parallel Matlab) is a simple interface for parallelizing Matlab computations, either on multiprocessor machines or in an environment of other Unix computers that can be remotely logged on to. It allows the user to spawn a set of slave Matlab sessions underneath the current session forming a Virtual Machine. A set of Matlab functions are provided for parallel execution of expressions, and also to perform automated parallelization of Matlab for loops.
