@groostav I teach concurrent and distributed programming at university, so I read a lot of research on the topic and I can tell you that the difference between concurrency and parallelism is very domain specific and changes over time. In most research papers they are synonyms. This answer on Quora I personally like: https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-concurrency-and-parallelism/answer/John-Gustafson-1?srid=vt0N Btw, the most upvoted answer on that Quora question gives an analogy that might serve as a basis for an explanation you are looking for if you want to draw a distinction between concurrency and parallelism.
