Appendix A. .NET 4 Parallelism Class Diagrams
This appendix includes diagrams for the classes, interfaces, structures, delegates, enumerations, and exceptions that support parallelism with the new lightweight concurrency model and the underlying threading model. There are also references to the chapters that explain the contents of these diagrams in more detail.
TASK PARALLEL LIBRARY
Figure A-1 shows a diagram of the relationship between PLINQ, the Task Parallel Library (TPL), data structures for coordination in parallel programming, threads that support the lightweight concurrency model, and layers of the underlying hardware.
This section includes diagrams for classes, structures, enumerations, and exceptions closely related to the TPL. It is divided into the following topics:
System.Threading.Tasks.Parallelclasses and structures
Task classes, enumerations, and exceptions
System.Threading.Tasks.Parallel Classes and Structures
Figure A-2 shows the diagram for the following classes and structures within the
