Teaching and Learning Experience
This program will provide a better teaching and learning experienceâfor you and your students. It will help:
Operating System Concepts,Â now initsÂ ninth edition,Â continues to provide a solidtheoretical foundation for understanding operatingsystems.Â The ninth editionÂ has been thoroughly updated toinclude contemporary examples of how operating systems function.The text includes content to bridge the gap between concepts andactual implementations. End-of-chapter problems, exercises, reviewquestions, and programming exercises help to further reinforceimportant concepts. Â A new Virtual Machine providesinteractive exercises to help engage students with thematerial.
For one- or two-semester undergraduate courses in operating systems for computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering majors
An introduction to operating systems with up-to-date and comprehensive coverage
Now in its 9th Edition, Operating Systems: Internals and Design Principles provides a comprehensive, unified introduction to operating systems topics for readers studying computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering. Author William Stallings emphasizes both design issues and fundamental principles in contemporary systems, while providing readers with 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 text illustrates and reinforces design concepts, tying them to real-world design choices with case studies in Linux, UNIX, Android, and Windows 10.
With an unparalleled degree of support for project integration, plus comprehensive coverage of the latest trends and developments in operating systems, including cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT), the text provides everything readers need to keep pace with a complex and rapidly changing field. The 9th Edition has been extensively revised and contains new material, new projects, and updated chapters.Â
The most complete, authoritative technical guide to the FreeBSD kernelâs internal structure has now been extensively updated to cover all major improvements between Versions 5 and 11. Approximately one-third of this editionâs content is completely new, and another one-third has been extensively rewritten.
Three long-time FreeBSD project leaders begin with a concise overview of the FreeBSD kernelâs current design and implementation. Next, they cover the FreeBSD kernel from the system-call level downâfrom the interface to the kernel to the hardware. Explaining key design decisions, they detail the concepts, data structures, and algorithms used in implementing each significant system facility, including process management, security, virtual memory, the I/O system, filesystems, socket IPC, and networking.
This Second Edition
â¢ Explains highly scalable and lightweight virtualization using FreeBSD jails, and virtual-machine acceleration with Xen and Virtio device paravirtualization
â¢ Describes new security features such as Capsicum sandboxing and GELI cryptographic disk protection
â¢ Fully covers NFSv4 and Open Solaris ZFS support
â¢ Introduces FreeBSDâs enhanced volume management and new journaled soft updates
â¢ Explains DTraceâs fine-grained process debugging/profiling
â¢ Reflects major improvements to networking, wireless, and USB support
Readers can use this guide as both a working reference and an in-depth study of a leading contemporary, portable, open source operating system. Technical and sales support professionals will discover both FreeBSDâs capabilities and its limitations. Applications developers will learn how to effectively and efficiently interface with it; system administrators will learn how to maintain, tune, and configure it; and systems programmers will learn how to extend, enhance, and interface with it.
