for explicit parallelism
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :
A feature of a programming language for a parallel
processing system which allows or forces the programmer to
annotate his program to indicate which parts should be
executed as independent parallel tasks. This is obviously
more work for the programmer than a system with implicit
parallelism (where the system decides automatically which
parts to run in parallel) but may allow higher performance.
