Parallel simulation kernel

posted Aug 1, 2013, 6:34 AM by José Pereira

Minha has now a parallel simulation kernel that takes advantage of multi-core hardware. Preliminary evaluation shows that a linear speedup can be achieved in most hardware configurations, including with HyperThreading virtual cores. This drastically reduces the computation time for large configurations.
