Parallel Processing

  • Henry Ledgard

Abstract

We are all familiar with events that can take place concurrently with other, perhaps related, events. The operation of several moving trains on a rail network, the handling of multiple lines of customers at a bank, and the simultaneous operation of multiple devices in a computing system are typical examples. The facilities for parallel processing provide a conceptual framework for dealing with such problems.
