Parallel Mandelbrot Set Model
written by Francisco Esquembre
The Parallel Mandelbrot Set Model is a parallelization of the sequential MandelbrotSet model, which does all the computations on a single processor core. This parallelization is able to use a computer with more than one cores (or processors) to carry out the same computation, thus speeding up the process.
The parallelization is done using the model elements in the Parallel Java group. These model elements allow easy use of the Parallel Java library created by Alan Kaminsky. In particular, the parallelization used for this model is based on code in Chapters 11 and 12 of Kaminsky's book Building Parallel Java.
The Parallel Mandelbrot Set Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double click the ejs_chaos_ParallelMandelbrotSet.jar file to run the program if Java is installed.
