How does Julia's multiple dispatch system differ from traditional object-oriented programming languages?

Unlike traditional object-oriented programming languages, Julia uses multiple dispatch to determine which method to execute based on the types of all arguments, not just the receiver. This allows for more flexible and expressive code.

The multiple dispatch system in Julia enables the writing of generic functions that can handle different types of inputs, promoting code reuse and extensibility. This is in contrast to single dispatch in languages like Python or Java, where methods are dispatched based only on the type of the receiver object.

In Julia, each method definition specifies the types of its arguments, and the dispatch system dispatches the call to the most specific matching method based on the argument types. This can lead to efficient and specialized code execution.
