This book is an introduction to the design and implementation of operating systems using OSP 2, the next generation of the highly popular OSP courseware for undergraduate operating system courses. Coverage details process and thread management; memory, resource and I/0 device management; and interprocess communication. The book allows students to practice these skills in a realistic operating systems programming environment. An Instructors Manual details how to use the OSP Project Generator and sample assignments. Even in one semester, students can learn a host of issues in operating system design.

Uses the Running Operation as the Main Thread Difficulty in understanding an operating system (OS) lies not in the technical aspects, but in the complex relationships inside the operating systems. The Art of Linux Kernel Design: Illustrating the Operating System Design Principle and Implementation addresses this complexity. Written from the perspective of the designer of an operating system, this book tackles important issues and practical problems on how to understand an operating system completely and systematically. It removes the mystery, revealing operating system design guidelines, explaining the BIOS code directly related to the operating system, and simplifying the relationships and guiding ideology behind it all. Based on the Source Code of a Real Multi-Process Operating System Using the 0.11 edition source code as a representation of the Linux basic design, the book illustrates the real states of an operating system in actual operations. It provides a complete, systematic analysis of the operating system source code, as well as a direct and complete understanding of the real operating system run-time structure. The author includes run-time memory structure diagrams, and an accompanying essay to help readers grasp the dynamics behind Linux and similar software systems. Identifies through diagrams the location of the key operating system data structures that lie in the memory Indicates through diagrams the current operating status information which helps users understand the interrupt state, and left time slice of processes Examines the relationship between process and memory, memory and file, file and process, and the kernel Explores the essential association, preparation, and transition, which is the vital part of operating system Develop a System of Your Own This text offers an in-depth study on mastering the operating system, and provides an important prerequisite for designing a whole new operating system.
Building a computer operating system is like weaving a fine tapestry. In each case, the ultimate goal is a large, complex artifact with a unified and pleasing design, and in each case, the artifact is constructed with small, ...

Demonstrates Real-World Case Studies from a Range of Event Sites Introduction to Crowd Science examines the growing rate of crowd-related accidents and incidents around the world. Using tools, methods, and worked examples gleaned from over 20 years of experience, this text provides an understanding of crowd safety. It establishes how crowd accidents and incidents (specifically mass fatalities in crowded spaces) can occur. It explores the underlying causes of incidences and implements techniques for crowd risk analysis and crowd safety engineering that can help minimize and even eliminate occurrences altogether. Understand Overall Crowd Dynamics and Levels of Complex Structure The book outlines a simple modeling approach to crowd risk analysis and crowds safety in places of public assembly. With consideration for major events, and large-scale urban environments, the material focuses on the practical elements of developing the crowd risk analysis and crowd safety aspects of an event plan. It outlines a range of modeling techniques, including line diagrams that represent crowd flow, calculations of the speed at which a space can fill, and the time it takes for that space to reach critical and crush density. It also determines what to consider during the event planning and approval (licensing/permitting) phases of the event process. Introduction to Crowd Science addresses key questions and presents a systematic approach to managing crowd risks in complex sites. It provides an understanding of the complexity of a site, and helps the reader plan for crowds in public places.

Operating systems are a vital program of any computer system and computer science education. This book introduces the design concepts of operating systems. As computer is eventually embedding in every area though Operating Systems is undergoing express transformation. More sophisticated operating system level software’s are developing in every arena of day-to-day life. This book is dedicatedly written for description of operating system concepts from initial to expert level with help of sophisticated and real world examples. Motive to write this book is to explain the operating system concepts from graduation to post graduate levels through understandable descriptions. Hopefully, experts also found healthy discussions in this book. The book covers Process Management, Processes Scheduling and Inter process communication in latest technologies. This book also covers technological enhancements for leading high speed and efficient process management techniques. Further this book explains the concepts of memory hierarchy, Memory Management, Memory allocation, Paging and segmentation, Virtual memory, etc., by considering detailed architectural designs and algorithms. Core and detailed examples have been used to illustrate both traditional and modern computing memory requirements. As File System Management and IO Managements is also a major arena of Operating systems design, a firm foundation examples based text is presented in this book.
