Summary: Parallel Algorithms

A summary of what we discussed in the “Parallel Algorithms” chapter.

In this chapter, you have learned about the complexity of handcrafting an algorithm to execute in parallel. You also now know how to analyze, measure, and tune the efficiency of parallel algorithms. The insights you gained while learning about parallel algorithms will have deepened your understanding of the requirements and the behaviors of the parallel algorithms found in the C++ standard library. C++ comes with four standard execution policies, which can be extended by compiler vendors.
