Abstract

Multithreading is an important aspect of modern computing and also an established model for carrying out complex computational problems for achieving better performance. For simple computations, however, the effectiveness of multithreading over sequential programming is not apparent. This paper attempts to determine the effectiveness of multithreading by performing simple computation through single and multiple threads for a range of very small number of computations to a very large number of computations.
