Definitions for "Parallelism"
Similarity of construction or meaning of clauses placed side by side, especially clauses expressing the same sentiment with slight modifications, as is common in Hebrew poetry; e. g.: --At her feet he bowed, he fell:Where he bowed, there he fell down dead. Judg. v. 27.
is the repetition of words, plot elements, or structures with variation, a frequent pattern found in texts.
a scheme; the expression of similar meanings in similar grammatical constructions.
The state of two planes parallel to each other; where two planes are equidistantly spaced in three dimensional space.
(n) An orientation control for geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. Parallelism is a condition in which a surface or an axis is equidistant at all points from a datum plane or datum axis, respectively. The distance between the feature and the datum is the tolerance value given in the control frame.
The condition that results when a surface, axis or centerplane is exactly parallel to a datum. Carry the GD&T Ultimate Pocket Guide with you on the job. It contains all these glossary terms and more.
A term which refers to the relationship between the two friction surfaces on a disc brake rotor. It is critical that the surfaces are parallel, particularly with ABS, as the slightest shudder can confuse the anti lock system.
The condition of being parallel, as the opposite sides of a brake rotor, which translates in this case into identical thickness at all points.
The parallel misalignment of the two surfaces of a brake rotor. Servo Action - A braking action in which one shoe serves the application force of the other.
Many things happening at once.
The doctrine that there are two parallel and coordinated series of events, one mental and the other physical, and that apparent causal interaction between the mind and the body is to be explained as a manifestation of the correlation between the two series.
Several agents acting at the same time independently, simultaneous computation similar to that which happens within living systems.
Indicates that multiple paths exist between two points in a network. These paths might be of equal or unequal cost. Parallelism is often a network design goal: if one path fails, there is redundancy in the network to ensure that an alternate path to the same point exists.
An evolutionary event where two identical changes occur independently.
In evolutionary biology, similar paths of evolutionary development in lineages of common ancestry.
the independent origin of apparently similar apomorphies from the same plesiomorphy.

(Gk. para 'side by side', allelos 'one another'; ¹ï¥M¡N¥­¦æµ²ºcªº¹B¥Î): The comparison of things by placing them side by side; a one-to-one correspondence of form, meaning, or both in a text.
When two notes are a certain distance apart and move the same interval at the same time in the same direction. A parallel third, for instance, would be when two notes are a third apart (C and E, for example), and they move, say, a step upward. Parallel thirds and sixths are supposed to sound good, while parallel fifths and octaves are supposed to sound bad.
The angular wedge difference between two opposing optical surfaces. Usually measured as arc minutes or arc seconds.
The permissible variation of the parallel relationship of the top surface diameter to the bearing surface diameter of a part.
The degree to which parts of a program may be concurrently executed.
