Is it possible to specify particular task to a particular kernel to be evaluated in parallel?

krs=LaunchKernels[]; (*It launches 6 kernels by default on my PC*)

ParallelEvaluate[a = 1 + 1, krs[[5]]];


The output is like:

{{}, {}, {}, {}, {"a"}, {}}

  • $\begingroup$ What I am looking for is to evaluate two expressions with each executed on different kernel in parallel. For example, I want to evaluate 1+1 on kernel 1, and 2+2 on kernel 2. $\endgroup$ – SleekTitan May 23 '20 at 13:34
  • $\begingroup$ @SleekTitan, I understood. Try ParallelEvaluate as I shown with corresponding second argument for choosing the kernel. The krs[[5]] means the fifth one. $\endgroup$ – Rom38 May 24 '20 at 3:13
