my laptop has 2 cores, can I assign a core to evaluate one code, and the other core for another code in parallel instead of evaluating in sequence? thanks

  • $\begingroup$ You can assign a separate kernel to separate notebooks using the Evaluation menu (if your license allows this). They are totally separate and don't share any variables. For parallelization in one notebook you may want to read this guide. $\endgroup$ – Sjoerd C. de Vries May 19 '14 at 22:09
