Thread

In computers, a series of instructions. A process, or single task, on a CPU may be broken up into multiple threads (multi-threading), which are subsets of the overall process that work together to increase efficiency. Think of it as “division of labor” for computer programs: each thread focuses on its particular assigned small part of the process resulting in faster execution than a single string of instructions. Threads inside a process can share resources, such as memory.
