Definition of Multithreading:

  1. Type of multitasking in which all tasks come from the same program, and are seemingly executed at the same time. This simultaneous processing is deceptive because the CPU is actually switching its activity very rapidly among all the threads (which are executable objects, each with its own stacks, registers, and instruction counters).

  2. A technique by which a single set of code can be used by several processors at different stages of execution.
