I certainly don't like to go around spouting nonsense, so I spent some time looking for formal definitions of concurrency. I wasn't able to find any support for the description you provided, though. Do you have a source?

FWIW, Wikipedia seems to believe that "concurrency is a property of systems in which several computations are executing simultaneously, and potentially interacting with each other".

Regardless, sorry if sloppy (or poorly defined) terminology obscured my point.




If you quote the Wikipedia definition with a bit more context you'll see it matches mine:

"In computer science, concurrency is a property of systems in which several computations are executing simultaneously, and potentially interacting with each other. The computations may be executing on multiple cores in the same chip, preemptively time-shared threads on the same processor, or executed on physically separated processors."
