Couverture de l’ouvrage Operating systems : concurrent and distributed software design
Incorporating Java and UML, and with new chapters on system security, Linux, Windows 2000 and extensible operating systems (including the Java Virtual Machine), this new book, building on the operating systems (OS) coverage of Bacon s Concurrent Systems, places itself at the heart of the modern operating systems course. This new book contain sufficient detail on the standard topics for this course, and incorporates newer OS topics such as security, microkernels and embedded systems to complement the strong coverage of distributed systems. The case studies, covering a full suite of professional operating systems, enable the course to be taught as a blend of theory and practice, so that on completion of the course a student is able to adapt and build real operating systems that function within a distributed environment.
