Have a look at for example Wikipedia:

A thread in computer science is short for a thread of execution. Threads are a way for a program to split itself into two or more simultaneously (or pseudo-simultaneously) running tasks. Threads and processes differ from one operating system to another, but in general, the way that a thread is created and shares its resources is different from the way a process does.

Or do some Googling.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
