In the following weeks, I will try to write some posts about parallelizing simple algorithms with the Erlang programming language. The main motivation for executing program instructions in parallel is to complete the computation faster than the sequential equivalent solution. As it is used, when someone wants to present the “parallelization power” of a programming language/model, the Fibonacci numbers are used. So, following this conversion, my first post will be about parallelizing the calculation of the Fibonacci integer sequence.
