You can ask Mathematica to abort at any point in a computation, either by calling the function Abort, or by typing appropriate interrupt keys.
When asked to abort, Mathematica will terminate the computation as quickly as possible. If the answer obtained would be incorrect or incomplete, then Mathematica returns $Aborted instead of giving that answer.
Aborts can be caught using CheckAbort, and can be postponed using AbortProtect.
