- Operating systems make computers easier to use and are responsible for the management of the available resources, i.e. how to efficiently, fairly, and securely allocate resources to programs. The purpose of this course is to make the student understand the main concepts underlying the design and implementation of operating systems. The topics covered include: processes and threads, interprocess communication and synchronization, deadlocks, scheduling, virtual memory and memory allocation, I/O systems, file systems, and protection.
- a first course in programming (eg. C or Java)
- algorithms and data structures
- computer architecture
- The course textbook is Operating System Concepts,8th edition by Avi Silberschatz, Peter Baer Galvin, and Greg Gagne (John Wiley & Sons Inc., 2008, ISBN 0-470-12872-0).
- Ivan Christoff is responsible for the lectures.
- Karl Marklund is responsible for the project and the labs.
- To pass the course, the student has to pass a written exam, and complete the 2 labs and the project. The exam will be closed book and is tentatively scheduled for March 10, 2009.
