Clojure pmap and reducers.

(require '[clojure.core.reducers :as r])

;; Simplest way to do parallel computation: pmap
;; Note: reduce isn't parallel
(reduce + (pmap inc (range 100000000)))

;; Clojure reducers: compute in paralllel

;; They partition the sequence to place on different cores.
;; They visit each element once, applying all the required
;; finctions (in this case, inc and a choice based on even?)
(r/fold + (r/filter even? (r/map inc [1 1 1 2])))
