Concurrency, Multithreading And Parallel Computing In Java


Multithreading and Concurrent Programming, Parallel Computation and MapReduce in Java + Fork-Join and Stream API

What you’ll learn

  • Understand basic concurrency
  • Understand the basics of multithreading
  • Understand parallel processing
  • Able to use the concepts in real-life scenarios


  • Basic Java (inheritance, object-oriented programming)


This course is about the basics of multithreading and concurrent programming with some parallel concepts. In the 21st century, this topic is becoming more and more popular with the advent of Big Data and Machine Learning. We will consider the low-level concepts such as threads, synchronization, and locks. The second chapter will be about concurrent libraries: of course, there are built-in classes and interfaces that we can use when implementing multithreaded applications. Then we develop little programs as show-cases for multithreading: the dining-philosopher problem or the students in library simulation. The last chapter is about parallel computing and MapReduce.
