Operating Systems – William Stallings – 6th Edition

Description

Operating Systems: Internals and Design Principles is a comprehensive and unified introduction to operating systems. By using several innovative tools, makes it possible to understand critical core concepts that can be fundamentally challenging.

The new edition includes the implementation of web based animations to aid visual learners. At key points in the , are directed to view an animation and then are provided with assignments to alter the animation input and analyze the results. The concepts are then and supported by end-of-chapter case studies of UNIX, Linux and Windows Vista.

These provide students with a solid understanding of the key mechanisms of modern operating systems and the types of design tradeoffs and involved in OS design. Because they are embedded into the text as end of chapter material, students are able to apply them right at the point of discussion.

This approach is equally useful as a basic and as an up-to-date survey of the state of the art. Resources William Stallings has prepared a robust suite of and instructor resources, a rich set of Animations to illustrate key functions and algorithms in OS design.
