Data parallelism is divided into synchronous mode and asynchronous mode.
The report shows how the distinct features of the Nordic model--distilled from the analysis by Hallin and Mancini of the other three dimensions--changed in recent years: Does the press remain strong, widespread, and characterized by political parallelism? Is there still an active state ensuring media pluralism and a strong public broadcasting service (PBS)?
Terminologies on Evolving Granularity, Clustering Accuracy, and Parallelism
Maintaining parallelism (also called parallel structure and parallel construction) is about meeting the reader's expectations, making your meaning clear, and creating smooth and pleasing rhythms in your sentences.
CUDA and Dynamic Parallelism. CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) is a general purpose parallel computing platform and programming model created by NVIDIA and implemented by the NVIDIA GPUs, which leverages the power of parallel computing on GPUs to solve complex computational problems in a more efficient way than on a CPU.
Their study shows that the complex interplay between bandwidth, power, and parallelism has tremendous implications for various heterogeneous and non-heterogeneous computing approaches.
Dynamic parallelism allows the developer to write code that can dynamically initiate work on regions of a calculation that require more-detailed, higher-resolution computations.
The platform is also equipped with a newly developed parallelism extraction function that automatically improves the processing efficiency of complex event processing.
Jakobson further maintains that the linguistic realization of poetic function is through parallelism, or known as "principle of equivalence": "The poetic function projects the principle of equivalence from the axis of selection into the axis of combination." (Jakobson, 1996: 14).
Most standard programs do not inherently have a lot of fine-grained parallelism in them, so finding a 'close-by' second instruction to execute in the same cycle is difficult because it commonly isn't there.
Two instances of the parallelism, apparently much liked by the ancients, run as follows (See Barney, K.
8 -- Pinpoint Laser Systems has introduced the Pinpoint Proline Alignment Kit, a visual laser system for checking and measuring straightness, flatness, squareness, parallelism, leveling, and many other tasks.
