What do you mean by parallelizing the beta function?

The task of evaluating the beta function for a single value is not parallelizable.

The task of evaluating the beta function for each value in a container is of course parallelizable.
But doing that requires parallelized STL algorithms,
and has nothing to do with the Boost.Math library.
