Best Book In Operating Systems

by AHelmy on Apr 3, 2007

I studied from this book last Term in 2006. William Stalling is the best in his field. He opens Subjects in all fields with a very simple and encouraging way. He is unique as he is writing in the field in other subject Computer Organization, Data commuincation and others.I read each of these books. He had prizes on some of these books as being the best books in the field. Also by the end of each chapter he have a very challenging exercises with different programming projects. I prefer him than other authors in the same field, inspite of he isnot taking the same fame as the others as most of the big universities apply their material from other authors. The index is as follows PART ONE: BACKGROUND 1. Computer System Overview 2. Operating System Overview PART TWO: PROCESSES 3. Process Description and Control 4. Threads, SMP, and Microkernels 5. Concurrency: Mutual Exclusion and Synchronization 6. Concurrency: Deadlock and Starvation PART THREE: MEMORY 7. Memory Management 8. Virtual Memory PART FOUR: SCHEDULING 9. Uniprocessor Scheduling 10. Multiprocessor and Real-Time Scheduling PART FIVE: INPUT/OUTPUT AND FILES 11. I/O Management and Disk Scheduling 12. File Management PART SIX: DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS 13. Distributed Processing, Client/Server, and Clusters 14. Distributed Process Management PART SEVEN: SECURITY 15. Computer Security Appendix 15A Encryption
