I usually employ a Toshiba portable computer of 2.8Ghz and 500MB RAM to make heavy calculations of Computational Fluid Dynamics. It runs under Windows XP Home.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was wondering how can I improve the capacity of dealing with data of my computer. The fact is I use mainly Matlab v6.5 (proffesional) to do calculations.

When I define some arrays of 10*10^6 elements or so, I notice in the task manager that the computer is dealing with 700 MB when starting the calculations. Sure it slows down the processing speed and so the time of computation increases.

I don't know if there is some trick to deliver the computer of inneccesary data or capacity which runs in a background mode, or if it is possible to use more virtual memory dedicated to Matlab or so.

Do you know something about it?

Thanks
