Abstract

We present an algorithm for parallel solving of nonlinear systems in a real time environment. The current implementation uses Real Time Linux (RTLinux) and is independent on the numerical method used for solving the system. Experimental tests show that the algorithm is up to ten times faster than the same parallel algorithm run in a normal environment.
