Yield: the current thread stops executing and gives a chance to other (waiting) threads to execute. If the other waiting threads have a lower priority then the current thread keeps on executing.
Join: the current thread calls join on another thread (lets say t1). t1 starts executing and the current thread goes into a waiting state. When t1 finishes the current thread resumes execution.
