  • sequentially
  • They may allow efficient processing with SIMD instructions in certain instruction set architectures However, parallel arrays also have several strong disadvantages, which serves to explain why they are not generally preferred: They have significantly worse locality of reference when visiting the records non-sequentially and examining multiple fields of each record. (wikipedia.org)
  • In parallel processing, many operations are performed simultaneously, as opposed to serial processing, in which the computational steps are performed sequentially. (wikipedia.org)
  • structures
  • Parallel Structures in Syntax. (wikipedia.org)
  • Again, in the image above, note that since serine and threonine possess similar structures with an alcohol side chain, the example marked "divergent" would be termed "parallel" if the amino acids were grouped by similarity instead of being considered individually. (wikipedia.org)
  • If the two pairs of wings are considered as interchangeable, homologous structures, this may be described as a parallel reduction in the number of wings, but otherwise the two changes are each divergent changes in one pair of wings. (wikipedia.org)
  • biographies
  • Has everyone noticed the uncanny parallels between the biographies of Barack Obama and Scott Brown? (slate.com)
  • Plutarch's Lives of the Noble Greeks and Romans, commonly called Parallel Lives or Plutarch's Lives, is a series of biographies of famous men, arranged in tandem to illuminate their common moral virtues or failings, probably written at the beginning of the second century AD. (wikipedia.org)
  • The surviving Parallel Lives (Greek: Βίοι Παράλληλοι, Bíoi Parállēloi) comprises 23 pairs of biographies, each pair consisting of one Greek and one Roman, as well as four unpaired, single lives. (wikipedia.org)

  • As power consumption (and consequently heat generation) by computers has become a concern in recent years, parallel computing has become the dominant paradigm in computer architecture, mainly in the form of multi-core processors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Parallel databases can be roughly divided into two groups, the first group of architecture is the multiprocessor architecture, the alternatives of which are the following: Shared memory architecture Where multiple processors share the main memory (RAM) space but each processor has its own disk (HDD). (wikipedia.org)
  • example
  • This example looks at why it is so hard to give a concrete answer to the question "How will my (parallel) application perform on my multi-core machine or on my cluster? (mathworks.com)
  • This simple analogy closely reflects the task parallel benchmarks in this example. (mathworks.com)
  • This example requires a parallel pool. (mathworks.com)
  • The practical example of parallel running in human resource management is job placement. (wikipedia.org)
  • The interface cards used to connect a parallel ATA drive to, for example, a PCI slot are not drive controllers: they are merely bridges between the host bus and the ATA interface. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, the evolution of the sesamoid "thumb" of the giant panda certainly is not parallel to that of the thumbs of primates, particularly hominins, and it also differs morphologically from primate thumbs, but from some points of view it might be regarded as convergent in function and appearance. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lives
  • Watch a clip from 'Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives,' a documentary about Mark Oliver Everett, the lead singer of Eels as he ventures throughout America to discover who his father, the physicist Hugh Everett III, was. (wsj.com)
  • arbitrary
  • However the criteria for defining convergent as opposed to parallel evolution often are unclear in practice, so that arbitrary diagnosis is common in some cases. (wikipedia.org)
  • computer

  • Parallel rendering (or Distributed rendering) is the application of parallel programming to the computational domain of computer graphics. (wikipedia.org)
  • 13th
  • The 2nd Annual Parallel Trade Conference will take place on the 13th and 14th of February and promises to deliver specialised, targeted presentations analysing and explaining the radical changes that have occurred over the last year and predicting the likelihood of further changes. (smi-online.co.uk)
  • efficiency
  • They are therefore less likely to need the hose at the same time, so this modified task has a higher parallel efficiency than the original one. (mathworks.com)
  • Graphical
  • Recent research has also suggested that parallel rendering can be applied to mobile gaming to decrease power consumption and increase graphical fidelity. (wikipedia.org)
  • result
  • the result of the program is unaffected by evaluating in parallel. (haskell.org)
  • The Parallel ATA standard is the result of a long history of incremental technical development, which began with the original AT Attachment interface, developed for use in early PC AT equipment. (wikipedia.org)
  • multiple
  • You can use the toolbox with Simulink ® to run multiple simulations of a model in parallel. (mathworks.com)
  • Note that if the parallel pool is using workers running on multiple computers, you may not experience any of the resource contention that we attempt to illustrate. (mathworks.com)
  • Parallel computing, on the other hand, uses multiple processing elements simultaneously to solve a problem. (wikipedia.org)
  • Parallel databases improve processing and input/output speeds by using multiple CPUs and disks in parallel. (wikipedia.org)
