It also serves as a useful reference for programmers, systems engineers, network designers and others involved in the design of computer products, information system and computer system personnel. Operating Systems provides a comprehensive and unified introduction to operating systems topics. Stallings emphasizes both design issues and fundamental principles in contemporary systems and gives readers a solid understanding of the key structures and mechanisms of operating systems. He discusses design trade-offs and the practical decisions affecting design, performance and security. The book illustrates and reinforces design concepts and ties them to real-world design choices through the use of case studies in Linux, UNIX, Android, and Windows 8. Teaching and Learning Experience This program presents a better teaching and learning experience-for you and your students. It will help: *Illustrate Concepts with Running Case Studies: To illustrate the concepts and to tie them to real-world design choices that must be made, four operating systems serve as running examples. *Easily Integrate Projects in your Course: This book provides an unparalleled degree of support for including a projects component in the course.*Keep Your Course Current with Updated Technical Content: This edition covers the latest trends and developments in operating systems.*Provide Extensive Support Material to Instructors and Students: Student and instructor resources are available to expand on the topics presented in the text.Read Less
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.
