Parallel computing is a type of computation in which many calculations or the execution of processes are carried out simultaneously.
Large problems can often be divided into smaller ones, which can then be solved at the same time. There are several different forms of parallel computing: bit- level, instruction- level, data, and task ncurrent computing is a form of computing in which several computations are executed during overlapping time periods— concurrently— instead of sequentially ( one completing before the next starts). This is a property of a system— this may be an individual program, a computer, or a network— and there is a separate execution point or " thread of control" for each computation ( " process" ).
