The memory space, where a given application is executed is called - process. A Process is the memory set aside for an application to be executed in.
Within this process the thing, which is really executed is the thread.
The key difference is that processes are fully isolated from each other; threads share (heap) memory with other threads running in the same application.
Threads share the address space of the process that created it; processes have their own address.
Threads have direct access to the data segment of its process; processes have their own copy of the data segment of the parent process.
Threads can directly communicate with other threads of its process; processes must use inter-process communication to communicate with sibling processes.
Threads have almost no overhead; processes have considerable overhead.
New threads are easily created; new processes require duplication of the parent process.
Threads can exercise considerable control over threads of the same process; processes can only exercise control over child processes.
A great answer to the question can also be found here:

-> Difference between process based and thread based multitasking: 1) threads share the same address space where as process doesn't. 2) context switching between threads is usually less expensive than between processes. 3) cost of communication between threads is relatively low.
Processes are made of threads; threads within a process can be handled by different processors to improve server performance.
One difference is that, when the main program terminates, all its threads are terminated. It is not the case for processes, because they are kind independent of the parent. When the parent terminates, the process keeps going unless the parent waits for it to die.
Plumbing pipe threads are squared and conduit pipe threads are tapered.
Water pipe threads are tapered, electrical pipe is not tapered.
screw thread are single threads which means they are not double
Unlike processes, threads are not independent of one another.Unlike processes, all threads can access every address in the task .Unlike processes, thread are design to assist one other. Note that processes might or might not assist one another because processes may originate from different users.
Capillitial threads are very minute forms of slime mold. A columella has numerous threads radiating from all sections of the cell.
NPT = pipe Briggs standard = Pipe NFT and NFC and ASAE = bolt
A thread is like any other class, except that there is the capacity to run multiple threads - multiple processes - simultaneously.
A cagoule is more puffy and has threads usually hanging out
i7 has 4 cores 8 threads, i5 has 4 cores 4 threads
Process --1------------m-- Threads 1 process to many threads Bring up your Task Manager (if you are using a windows), Performance tap, you can see the number of process and the number of threads, usually the number of threads is a lot higher than the number of processes.
The difference is that competing processes in an operating system compete for resources. Cooperating processes share resources, and some even work together to complete the same task.
Multiple processes can take advantage of true parallelism when multiple processors are involved. Normally, two threads running in the same process must run on the same physical processor. Change those threads to processes, however, and you can have them each running on a separate processor in parallel.
Annealing and Sintering are the same processes.
Every process allocated its own data memory but all threads shares same memory .
The difference between the two intaglio processes of etching and engraving is the use of acid. Engraving is a form of dry point and etching uses acid.
different paths of control in a program that a computer might run at the same time if it has parallel processing support for multithread execution. threads and processes are two ways of supporting multitasking on a uniprocessor or multiprocessing on a multiprocessor. threads are lighter weight: take less OS resources to implement but only support limited protection and security. processes take more OS resources but can support full protection and security. Many operating systems support both processes and threads, allowing each process to have many threads.
A rethread kit cleans up damaged existing threads. A tap and die kit makes threads from scratch.
The difference between the two processes of analysis is that one is your mom and the other is your dad. That is why your an Orphan
multitasking infers the mechanism to run many processes simultaneously with user interaction. multithreading is a mechanism of running various threads under single process within its own space.
