Concurrency, Multithreading and Parallel Computing in Java


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 21th 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 library: of course there are built in classes and interfaces that we can use when implementing multithreaded applications. Then we develope little programs as show-cases for multithreading: the dining-philosopher problem or the students in library simulation. Last chapter is about parallel computing and MapReduce.

Section 1:

  • theory behind multithreading
  • pros and cons of multithreading

Section 2:

  • multithreading basics
  • Runnable and Thread
  • join, volatile, synchronized, wait and notify
  • producer-consumer model
  • locks, semaphores and executors

Section 3:

  • concurrent collections
  • latch, cyclic barrier and blocking queues
  • delay queue, priority queue and concurrent maps

Section 4:

  • multithreaded examples
  • dining philosophers problem
  • library application
  • miner game

Section 5:

  • what is parallel computing
  • parallel merge sort
  • parallel algorithms

Section 6:

  • Fork-Join framework
  • maximum finding in parallel manner

Section 7:

  • what is MapReduce
  • MapReduce and Fork-Join framework
