This revised and updated Second Edition presents a practical introduction to operating systems and illustrates these principles through a hands-on approach using accompanying simulation models developed in Java and C++. This text is appropriate for upper-level undergraduate courses in computer science. Case studies throughout the text feature the implementation of Java and C++ simulation models, giving students a thorough look at both the theoretical and the practical concepts discussed in modern OS courses. This pedagogical approach is designed to present a clearer, more practical look at OS concepts, techniques, and methods without sacrificing the theoretical rigor that is necessary at this level. It is an ideal choice for those interested in gaining comprehensive, hands-on experience using the modern techniques and methods necessary for working with these complex systems. Every new printed copy is accompanied with a CD-ROM containing simulations (eBook version does not include CD-ROM). New material added to the Second Edition: - Chapter 11 (Security) has been revised to include the most up-to-date information - Chapter 12 (Firewalls and Network Security) has been updated to include material on middleware that allows applications on separate machines to communicate (e.g. RMI, COM+, and Object Broker) - Includes a new chapter dedicated to Virtual Machines - Provides introductions to various types of scams - Updated to include information on Windows 7 and Mac OS X throughout the text - Contains new material on basic hardware architecture that operating systems depend on - Includes new material on handling multi-core CPUs Instructor Resources: -Answers to the end of chapter questions -PowerPoint Lecture Outlines

Smartphone Operating System Concepts with Symbian OS uses Symbian OS as a vehicle to discuss operating system concepts as they are applied to mobile operating systems.It is this focus that makes this tutorial guide both invaluable and extremely relevant for today's student.In addition to presenting and discussing operating system concepts, this book also includes exercises that compare and contrast Symbian OS, Unix/Linux and Microsoft Windows. These assignments can be worked on in a classroom laboratory or in a student's own time. The book is replete with examples (both conceptual and applied to handhelds) as well as: * Summaries at the end of each chapter. * Problems the students can do as homework. * Experiment-oriented exercises and questions for students to complete on a handheld device * A reading list, bibliography and a list of sources for handheld software It also contains a series of on-line laboratories based on the software developed for Symbian OS devices. Students can perform these labs anywhere, and can use printing and e-mail facilities to construct lab write-ups and hand in assignments. Students, for the first time, will be taught Symbian OS concepts so that they can start developing smartphone applications and become part of the mass-market revolution.

This applied book for engineers and scientists, written in a non-theoretical manner, focuses on underlying principles that are important in a wide range of disciplines. It emphasizes the interpretation of results, the presentation and evaluation of assumptions, and the discussion of what should be done if the assumptions are violated. Integration of spreadsheet and statistical software complete this treatment of statistics. Chapter topics include describing and summarizing data; probability and discrete probability distributions; continuous probability distributions and sampling distributions; process control charts; estimation procedures; hypothesis testing; the design of experiments; and simple linear and multiple regression models. For individuals interested in learning statistics–without a high level of mathematical sophistication. Please Note: The CD-ROM originally included is no longer available. However, the data files can be downloaded at www.prenhall.com/sincich. And the PHStat2 content can be purchased standalone.

Operating Systems

Internals and Design Principles

View: 5278


For a one-semester undergraduate course in operating systems for computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering majors. Winner of the 2009 Textbook Excellence Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association (TAA)! Operating Systems: Internals and Design Principles is a comprehensive and unified introduction to operating systems. By using several innovative tools, Stallings makes it possible to understand critical core concepts that can be fundamentally challenging. The new edition includes the implementation of web based animations to aid visual learners. At key points in the book, students are directed to view an animation and then are provided with assignments to alter the animation input and analyze the results. The concepts are then enhanced and supported by end-of-chapter case studies of UNIX, Linux and Windows Vista. These provide students with a solid understanding of the key mechanisms of modern operating systems and the types of design tradeoffs and decisions involved in OS design. Because they are embedded into the text as end of chapter material, students are able to apply them right at the point of discussion. This approach is equally useful as a basic reference and as an up-to-date survey of the state of the art.

Multimedia Systems discusses the basic characteristics of multimedia operating systems, networking and communication, and multimedia middleware systems. The overall goal of the book is to provide a broad understanding of multimedia systems and applications in an integrated manner: a multimedia application and its user interface must be developed in an integrated fashion with underlying multimedia middleware, operating systems, networks, security, and multimedia devices. Fundamental characteristics of multimedia operating and distributed communication systems are presented, especially scheduling algorithms and other OS supporting approaches for multimedia applications with soft-real-time deadlines, multimedia file systems and servers with their decision algorithms for data placement, scheduling and buffer management, multimedia communication, transport, and streaming protocols, services with their error control, congestion control and other Quality of Service aware and adaptive algorithms, synchronization services with their skew control methods, and group communication with their group coordinating algorithms and other distributed services.
