The Kernel is the back-end application thread that does the actual evaluation of all non-graphical expressions. It can be accessed directly through the console but is more commonly working behind the scenes to power the Notebook Interface. Multiple Kernels may be run for parallel computation.
Piggybacking on this, I am somehow not fully convinced that I can't save data generated by a calculation in a mathematica file so that when I re-launch said file, I wouldn't have to run my ...
Recently I've been making movies by having Mathematica create figures and then I combine all of them together using ffmpeg. The problem now is that my macbook is ...
So I'm in the middle of generating some plots and all of the sudden the frontend goes dead and I haven't saved my work. I'm using Mathematica 8 in MacOS X. The MathKernel process is still running and ...
I'm evaluating this code in Mathematica 8.0.0 on Mac OS X 10.6.8: ...
Sometimes when generating a lot of data the memory usage shoots beyond its physical realm and my laptop freezes. There is no way to stop Mathematica when this happens. Task manager (or its equivalent ...
I would like to run a computation in one NoteBook that will take 2 hours. Could I assign this Notebook a specific Kernel so I can run computation in other Notebooks ?
Is there some way to do this other than going to Evaluation -> Quit kernel and firing a new one up?
