An introduction to operating systems with up-to-date and comprehensive coverage
The eBook Operating Systems: Internals and Design Principles 9th edition provides a very comprehensive, unified introduction to operating systems topics for readers studying computer engineering, computer science, and electrical engineering. Best-selling and expert author William Stallings emphasizes both design issues and fundamental principles in contemporary systems, while providing students with a solid understanding of the key mechanisms and structures of operating systems (OS). He discusses design trade-offs and the practical decisions affecting performance, design and security. The textbook illustrates and reinforces design concepts, tying them to real-world design choices with case studies in UNIX, Linux, Android, and Windows 10.
Building on fundamental principles, the ebook presents recent developments such as real-time systems, threads, multiprocessor scheduling, process migrations and security. And, the new 9th edition now presents a comprehensive and extremely current introduction to distributed operating systems–reflecting current trends in the field and highlighting how distributed operating systems concepts build on concepts found in traditional operating systems.
With an unparalleled degree of support for project integration, plus comprehensive coverage of the latest developments and trends in operating systems, including the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing, the ebook provides everything students need to keep pace with a complex and rapidly changing field.
