Introduction: Parallel Programming

“Parallel computing is the use of multiple processors in order to solve a specific task. For quite a few decades now parallelism has been used in the domain of High Performance Computing (HPC) where large, difficult problems are split up into pieces which are solved and then recombined to form the answer. With the emergence of multiple cores per processor this has become more and more important for the everyday user and programmer. In this article I will explain some of the elementry concepts of parallel computing and point the reader to further points of information.”
