start is the initial state / method. run the state / method where the thread stays all time until it returns from there by a certain condition (you can check a bool variable in a loop for example), when it returns from run, the thread is stopped. Don't use the stop or suspend methods! They are not safe. For the other states / actions, see https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/lang/Thread.html You might check the methods wait() and interrupt() for your block action. As well as join() for synchronisation. Runnable is not a state, but an interface which is implemented by Thread. To customize your own Runnable or Thread, you can either implement Runnable or extend Thread. See the Oracle tutorials: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/essential/concurrency/index.html

start() -> run() -> does whatever the thread needs to do -> return from run method. I don't know what exactly you want to know. Any particular questions?
