Re: Any Mathematica tricks to share?

You can use parallel processing st speed things up. Either parallelmap or define functions to operate on lists (“Listable”). Also some functions you define can be complied to rum faster.

Re: Problem 276

So I have been thinking about this problem wayyyy too long. I think I have done some pretty good stepwise refinement on my algorithm but ran out of things to refine, and still have an estimated 275 day run time to solution (Mathematica is pithy but sometimes very slow). Am I allowed to ask - can thi...

Re: Mathematica

I've used Mathematica to solve the first 100 or so problems. Each was solved in less than 5 minutes run time. * Mathematica supports parallel processing quite easily (ParallelDo, ParallelMap etc) which can reduce run time; * Mathematica also supports "compilation". That is, it creates more efficient...
