PModel is an
extension module for
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
