The need for greater processing speed

The world/universe is an immensely parallel entity, wherein numerous complex, interconnected events are occurring simultaneously, and within a temporal sequence. Serially analyzing the physics/mechanics of these events would indeed take a very long time. On the other hand, parallel processing is highly suited for modeling and/or simulating these types of phenomena, such as the physics of nuclear weapons testing and galaxy formation mentioned earlier. Depicted here are additional events that lend themselves to parallel processing:

The need for greater processing speed

We have already discussed, in general, some of the reasons for employing parallel ...
