I am not sure whether this is the relevant mailing list for
general parallelization questions ...

In any case, before converting your Matlab code to C++ try using
parallelization features that come with Matlab.

Otherwise, after translating your Matlab code to C++, you should
consider in the first place getting acquainted with OpenMP and
use it to speed up your code on your 8-core machine.
OpenMP can be rather straightforward to apply.

Afterwards, if necessary, you may look into parallelizing over multiple
machines with OpenMPI.

Someone advised an interesting link to online courses on parallelism
(OpenMP and OpenMPI) in the following post
