Operating Systems Design and Implementation, 3e , is ideal for introductory courses on computer operating systems. Written by the creator of Minux, professional programmers will now have the most up-to-date tutorial and reference available today.
Revised to address the latest version of MINIX (MINIX 3), this streamlined, simplified new edition remains the only operating systems text to first explain relevant principles, then demonstrate their applications using a Unix-like operating system as a detailed example. It has been especially designed for high reliability, for use in embedded systems, and for ease of teaching.
?The presentation is excellent. The book should be on the desk of any serious student of operating systems.?--Dr. Samuel Kohn, Thomas Edison State College
?I would give the authors very high grades for their writing style. Topics are explained in a clear and understandable manner. Presentations are well organized and they flow in logical fashion. The book provides the right depth and breadth of explanations with the appropriate amount of rigor and abstraction.? --Gojko Babic, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Ohio State University
The definitive, up-to-date introduction to operating systems:
Core principles plus hands-on examples with the new MINIX 3 operating system
The world?s best-selling introductory operating systems text has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest advances in OS design and implementation. Offering an optimal balance of theory and practice, Operating Systems: Design and Implementation, Third Edition remains the best resource for anyone seeking a deep understanding of how operating systems work.
This edition includes MINIX 3, more compact, more reliable, better suited for embedded applications ? and, above all, even easier to teach and learn from. Using MINIX, the authors introduce virtually every core concept needed to construct a working OS: system calls, processes, IPC, scheduling, I/O, deadlocks, memory management, threads, file systems, security, and more.
