Overview of the Grid Package
List of Grid Package Commands
The Grid package is a set of programmer tools for parallel computation. In particular, the Grid package provides support for multi-process parallel computation. It also extends to distributed multi-process parallel computation on a cluster or across a network.
Functionality for running parallel processes on your local machine is included with Maple. This lets you take advantage of your multi-core and multi-CPU architectures. With the addition of the Grid Computing Toolbox you can also deploy your algorithms to external machines on a network or cluster. For more information on the Grid Computing Toolbox, see Grid Computing Toolbox.
Each command in the Grid package can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the command calling sequence.
The long form, Grid:-command, is always available. The short form can be used after loading the package.
The following is a list of available commands.
To display the help page for a particular Grid command, see Getting Help with a Command in a Package.
The Grid package was introduced in Maple 15.
For more information on Maple 15 changes, see Updates in Maple 15.
