Description

The symbolic manipulation program FORM is specialized to handle very large algebraic expressions. Some specific features of its internal structure make FORM very well suited for parallelization. We have now parallel versions of FORM, one is based on POSIX threads and is optimal for modern multicore computers while another one uses MPI and can be used to parallelize FORM on clusters and Massive Parallel Processing systems. Most existing FORM programs will be able to take advantage of the parallel execution without the need for modifications.
