Definitions of EXPLICIT PARALLELISM
Sort: Oldest first
A feature of a programming language for a parallelprocessing system which allows or forces the programmer toannotate his program to indicate which parts should beexecuted as independent parallel tasks. This is obviouslymore work for the programmer than a system with implicitparallelism (where the system decides automatically whichparts to run in parallel) but may allow higher performance.
