Serial execution and parallel execution, Computer Engineering

Serial Execution

Execution of a program consecutively, one statement at a time. In the easiest sense, this is what occurs on a one processor machine. However, even many of the parallel tasks also have quite sections of a parallel program that should be executed serially.

Parallel Execution

Implementation of sections of a program by more than single processor at the same point of time.
