PModel is an extension module for ISIS which transparently distributes the calculation of spectral models over multiple CPUs or hosts. It can simultaneously compute pieces of a model over an entire grid, or the entire model over pieces of a grid, using essentially arbitrary mathematical expressions.


Although experimental software, PModel has been used for months in the context of ongoing astrophysics research, within multiple environments. It may be of interest to potential collaborators working with expensive models which cannot be tractably computed in other spectral modeling packages. A more detailed description of the package is given in this README, and additional examples can be found in the examples and regression tests directories of the distribution.
