gigaNumerics is the unique set of evolving Mathematica
technologies that deliver high-speed numerical computations. Because
of Mathematica's generality and accuracy checking, numerical
calculations would normally have suffered speed penalties because a
number of extra operations have to occur each time a calculation is
In fact, Mathematica regularly outperforms specialist numerical systems.
This is achieved by using the most modern algorithms--often developed by
Wolfram Research--and an unique set of technologies, including automatic
algorithm selection, precompilation, packed arrays, processor
optimization, symbolic preprocessing, and vectorization. For even higher
performance, gridMathematica delivers an optimized parallel Mathematica
environment for modern supercomputers.
