Pooch provides the easiest way to assemble and operate a parallel computer. We encourage you to see for yourself. Pooch even operates correctly on mixed clusters of OS 9 and OS X Macs. The download also contains the AltiVec Fractal Carbon app, a parallel application that rapidly computes Mandelbrot-style fractals which also demonstrates high-performance computing and parallel computing. And the Fresnel Diffraction Explorer which simulates Fresnel diffraction, a phenomenon of light, using an advanced set of algorithms.
