Automatic Parallelization, is a computer compiler optimization technique, which refers to the use of a optimizing parallelizing compiler to convert sequential code into multi-threaded or vectorized (or even both) code in order to utilize multiple processors simultaneously in a shared-memory multiprocessor (SMP) machine. The goal of automatic parallelization is to relieve programers from the tedious and error-prone manual parallelization process.
Application stack, also known as application suite or application set, is a group of applications closely related in functionality.
