For certain models, RESTART is a powerful method to simulate events up to an extremely low probability with sufficient accuracy and within reasonable time. As shown in chapter 3, the speed-up can be very high. Generally, parallelisation can speed-up simulations, depending on the problem to solve, see section 2.3. It appears natural to consider the possibilities to combine these approaches and to find out which way of parallelisation provides optimum additional speed-up for RESTART simulations.
