9780131429383: Operating Systems: Design and Implementation (Prentice Hall Software Series)

Operating Systems Design and Implementation, 3e, is ideal for introductory courses on computer operating systems. Written by the creator of Minux, professional programmers will now have the most up-to-date tutorial and reference available today.

 

Revised to address the latest version of MINIX (MINIX 3), this streamlined, simplified new edition remains the only operating systems text to first explain relevant principles, then demonstrate their applications using a Unix-like operating system as a detailed example. It has been especially designed for high reliability, for use in embedded systems, and for ease of teaching.

From the Back Cover:

“The presentation is excellent. The book should be on the desk of any serious student of operating systems.”--Dr. Samuel Kohn, ThomasEdisonStateCollege

 

“I would give the authors very high grades for their writing style. Topics are explained in a clear and understandable manner. Presentations are well organized and they flow in logical fashion. The book provides the right depth and breadth of explanations with the appropriate amount of rigor and abstraction.” --Gojko Babic, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, OhioStateUniversity

 

The definitive, up-to-date introduction to operating systems:

Core principles plus hands-on examples with the new MINIX 3 operating system

 

The world’s best-selling introductory operating systems text has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest advances in OS design and implementation. Offering an optimal balance of theory and practice, Operating Systems: Design and Implementation, Third Edition remains the best resource for anyone seeking a deep understanding of how operating systems work.

 

This edition includes MINIX 3, more compact, more reliable, better suited for embedded applications – and, above all, even easier to teach and learn from. Using MINIX, the authors introduce virtually every core concept needed to construct a working OS: system calls, processes, IPC, scheduling, I/O, deadlocks, memory management, threads, file systems, security, and more. 

 

NEW TO THIS EDITION

 

   Newly-released, significantly-improved MINIX 3 operating system on CD-ROM: giving students  hands-on experience in  modifying and rebuilding a contemporary operating system

   Expanded and reorganized coverage of processes and communication

   Revised and enhanced coverage of CPU scheduling, deadlocks, file system reliability, and security

   Includes more than 150 end of chapter problems

About the Author:

Andrew S. Tanenbaum has a B.S. Degree from M.I.T. and a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. He is currently a Professor of Computer Science at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, where he heads the Computer Systems Group. He is also Dean of the Advanced School for Computing and Imaging, an interuniversity graduate school doing research on advanced parallel, distributed, and imaging systems. Nevertheless, he is trying very hard to avoid turning into a bureaucrat.

In the past, he has done research on compilers, operating systems, networking, and local-area distributed systems. His current research focuses primarily on the design of wide-area distributed systems that scale to a billion users. These research projects have led to five books and over 85 referred papers in journals and conference proceedings.

Prof. Tanenbaum has also produced a considerable volume of software. He was the principal architect of the Amsterdam Compiler Kit, a widely-used toolkit for writing portable compilers, as well as of MINIX, a small UNIX clone intended for use in student programming labs. Together with his Ph.D. students and programmers, he helped design the Amoeba distributed operating system, a high-performance microkernel-based distributed operating system. The MINIX and Amoeba systems are now available for free via the Internet..

Prof. Tanenbaum is a Fellow of the ACM, a Fellow of the IEEE, a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, winner of the 1994 ACM Karl V. Karlstrom Outstanding Educator Award, and winner of the 1997 ACM/SIGCSE Award for Outstanding Contributions to Computer Science Education. He is also listed in Who’s Who in the World.

 

Albert S. Woodhull was a faculty member in the School of Natural Science, Hampshire College, Amherst, MA for many years. He has taught at the University of Massachusetts and Smith College in the US, and he has been a visiting faculty member on multiple occasions at universities in Nicaragua, supported on two of these visits by Fulbright grants. He also served as a computer and network system administrator at the University of Massachusetts. He holds an B.S. degree from M.I.T. and a Ph.D. from the University of Washington. His home page on the web is at http://minix1.woodhull.com/asw/.
