Conclusions

Parallel computing can be viewed as a very efficient tool to solve large and complex problems either in order to speed up the response or to overcome lack of resources. Since the last decade the parallel computation has become quite feasible even for small design offices that can create a parallel environment by interconnecting individual workstations into a cluster by standard Ethernet (10 or 100 Mb/s). Such a cluster could even outperform parallel supercomputers at substantially lover investment and maintenance cost. The state-of-the-art message passing libraries enables to port the parallel application to various combinations of hardware and software platforms.
