Parallel Architectures
These pages are intended to provide a brief introduction to the complex field of parallel architectures, or computers that use more than one processor in order to increase the speed at which they operate.
We introduce the computer, before going on to explain the various types of parallelism that are currently used. We give some example applications of parallel systems and take a guess at what the future may hold for such systems.
