Parallel or concurrent operation has many different forms within a computer system. Using a model based on the different streams used in the computation process, we represent some of the different kinds of parallelism available. A stream is a sequence of objects such as data, or of actions such as instructions. Each stream is independent of all other streams, and each element of a stream can consist of one or more objects or actions.
