Hi Mark,

You may use conditional variables in threads. Perform the calculation in
each thread, acquire lock and then wait for conditional variable to be
notified from the main thread. The above steps should be put into some loop.
I use this technique in my analysis:

loop example:
conditional variable use:
my condition class: [separate repository]

Good Luck, Samvel
