Multi-Core Programming


In 1945, mathematician John von Neumann, with the aid of J. Presper

Eckert and John Mauchly, wrote a memo proposing the creation of an

Electronic Discrete Variable Automatic Computer, more famously known

as the EDVAC. In this paper, von Neumann suggested the stored-program

model of computing. In the von Neumann architecture, a program is a

sequence of instructions stored sequentially in the computer’s memory.

The program’s instructions are executed one after the other in a linear,

single-threaded fashion.
