Integration, root solving or minimizing a function whose evaluation
is itself time consuming. On a multi core machine you can get several
function values in the same time a single core machine produces one.
Adapting numerical integration is probably quite easy, while root
solving and optimizers will probably require new algorithms which get
higher order convergence from the multiple function values computed
in parallel in order to minimize iteration count.
