In at least the following situations, I have experienced that the kernel has shut down during evaluation. The thing is that there is no message at all when it shuts down.

temp = Partition[Flatten[Import["temp.dat", "Table"]], 3];


P.S. The file temp.dat is in the following link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7611247/temp.dat.

Why has the kernel shut down without any warning message? What can I check or how can I fix it?

  • $\begingroup$ Even though I reduce the precision or accuracy of numbers in data, the problem wasn't solved. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Or try ListContourPlot[temp, DataRange -> All]? $\endgroup$
