CSCI 3362 Operating Systems (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course will provide a broad introduction to software systems with emphasis on operating system design and implementation. Its objective is to introduce students to operating systems with main focus on resource management and interfacing issues with hardware layers. Particular emphasis will be given to process management (processes, threads, CPU scheduling, synchronization, and deadlock), (virtual) memory management (segmentation, paging, swapping, caching) with focus on the interplay between architectural components and software layers. If there is time, we will investigate and discuss these same issues for distributed systems. The course programming assignments will be in Java/C.
