Operating System Concepts 8th Edition Abraham Silberschatz Peter B Galvin( bestthing.info) He is a coauthor of the textbook Database System Concepts. In this book, we do not concentrate on any particular operating system or hardware. . Chapter 14 was derived from a paper by Hillyer and Silberschatz [ ].

Additionally, nearly every chapter has been updated with new material and older material has been removed. New to this edition: - Real-time systems integrated as appropriate throughout the text instead of concentrated in a single chapter. New Chapter 16, Virtual Machines, provides an overview of virtualization and how it relates to contemporary operating systems.

New Chapter 17, Distributed Systems, combines a selection of materials from previous Chapters 16, 17, and The Linux Systems chapter has been updated to cover the Linux Kernel version 3.

This virtual machine also includes a development environment with compilers and editors. Most of the programming assignments can be completed using this virtual machine. Over 60 new written exercises and over 20 new programming problems and projects, most involving processes, threads, process synchronization, and memory management.

Some involve adding kernel modules to the Linux system. The Ninth Edition of this respected text continues to present students with real-world operating systems to illustrate fundamental operating concepts. Students are able to bridge the gap between concepts and actual implementations by learning a solid theoretical foundation of operating systems. Prior to that, he held a chaired professorship in the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin.

His research interests include database systems, operating systems, storage systems, and network management. Thomas H. Database Systems: Carlos Coronel.

Thank you for your feedback. Share your thoughts with other customers. Write a customer review. Read reviews that mention operating systems computer science high level easy to understand introductory course william stallings good book easy to read case studies source code end of chapter system calls process management linux kernel website virtual memory good job poorly organized modern operating book is great.

The authors did a pretty decent job taking a hard subject and writing about in a way I could understand, and organizing the sections in a way that builds your knowledge. My professor gave us a number of hard programming assignments in C that followed the book as well and reinforced that knowledge.

So if you use this book within the right system, it can be very good. I don't think it would be easy for a beginner to just read however. You really need to dive into some of the things that you read about and get your hands dirty to gain the full value from this book. My graduate class was able to cover 6 chapters completely plus a spattering from a few other chapters in one semester. It was a very worthwhile class.

Paperback Verified download. Very succinct book for early learners like myself neophytes as my teacher calls us. There is the full linux kernel development book in its fifth edition, but that can be dense and frustrating for beginners.

This Operating System Concepts Essentials has a great accompanying website with lots of great code examples and various resources that are very helpful. Had to get this book for a class.

The most confusing book I have every read, typos and you will need to read over the chapters twice to get what it being said. Best to use the Powerpoint on the linked site to get the summary of each chapter or just go to the summary within the chapter.

I know they author's tried well to break down the subject but it seemed at times that it was too much filler and not just enough for what need to be explained. Loving this book. Had to download for my Operating Systems Theory class. When I saw that the regular edition cost over bucks I was ready to grit my teeth and just download it. Then I heard about the Indian edition which was insanely cheaper so I bought it without a second thought.

Shipping was fast and the book is high quality. As for content, this book is great.

After finishing a particularly long chapter, I found myself continuing to read simply because I was feeling more curious about what the author would talk about next. This edition is great! Hermin Hollerith, Maker of Tacky Wreaths in the 70's. This is a very well written book on operating system design, multiprogramming, threads and all the great things that go on inside your computer while it runs an operating system.

It requires some prerequisite knowledge of computer hardware and some programming. As other reviewers have stated, it is not a freshman level book.

It is however, an excellent guide for people studying software design. It seems to be lacking in some areas, the section on semaphores was probably the worst area of the book. I had to turn to Tanenbaum's works for better information. Overall though, worthy of four stars.

Copyright Note

Unfortunately, I have to add to my review that I am deeply disappointed in the direction the publisher has taken with respect to the text. I find it distasteful that publishers have gone from printing student solutions manuals to requiring access to a web site.

Fortunately, the editions have not changed that much and the questions are still available in solutions manuals of prior editions or perhaps if you are lucky, someone has a PDF of them. Likewise, leading search engines can provide sources for researching the solution to see if your answer is correct.

This book was the required reading for one of my college programming courses. The authors go in to good details about the specifics of all subjects relating to operating systems in general.

Operating System Concepts, Sixth Edition

Some that were notable were the use and creation of semaphore objects, threading, CPU scheduling, and disk scheduling algorithms. The semaphores and threading were particularly useful in completing the classic synchronization problem 'The Dining Philosophers' which was one of the assignments for the course.

The breakdown of disk organization was another very beneficial and highly interesting topic. The book has generalized examples and each topic includes a good deal of theory. It helps to know Assembly as well, but not necessary. This book has been around for many editions.He also provides workshops to computer science educators and industry professionals.
