Description

Operating System Principles is a comprehensive reference book on operating systems.

Summary Of The Book

Operating System Principles presents extensive resource material on the fundamentals of operating systems. It is divided into eight parts and begins with an introduction to operating systems and system structures. The second part deals with process management. It covers concepts like process-concept, multi-threaded programming, and process scheduling.

Subsequent chapters cover topics like synchronization, deadlocks, memory-management strategies, virtual memory management, file systems and their implementation, secondary storage structures and I/O systems. The last few chapters of the book are dedicated to concepts like distributed operating systems, system protection and security, real-time systems, the Linux system, Windows XP, and influential operating systems.

The book ends with three appendices that present information about UNIX BSD, the Mach system, and Windows 2000. It has been thoroughly revised and updated from previous editions to include the latest advancements in the field. It has also been modified to improve concept coverage and narrow the gap between theoretical explanations and practical applications. Numerous lab projects, exercises, and review questions are also included for practice.

The book was published in 2006 by Wiley. It has received positive reviews for its detailed and solid coverage of the fundamentals of operating systems.

Wonderful book

It is a wonderful book of operating system. Very simple, easy language, clear description about each and every topic. Those who want to start with knowledge of O.S. must surely go for this book. The book is gud for theoretical portion, but if one want to go for numerical portion then must try any other book as numerical section is limited.
