noun, Mathematics. 1. a theorem that gives conditions under which a function written in implicit form can be written in explicit form.

- Implicit parallelism
parallel A feature of a programming language for a parallel processing system which decides automatically which parts to run in parallel. The best way of providing implicit parallelism is still (1995) an active research topic. The problem is to generate the right number of parallel tasks of the right size (or “granularity”). Too many tasks […]
