Operating System Concepts, 9780471694663 (0471694665), John Wiley & Sons, 2004
Another defining moment in the evolution of operating systems

Small footprint operating systems, such as those driving the handheld devices that the baby dinosaurs are using on the cover, are just one of the cutting-edge applications you’ll find in Silberschatz, Galvin, and Gagne’s Operating System Concepts, Seventh Edition. 

By staying current, remaining relevant, and adapting to emerging course needs, this market-leading text has continued to define the operating systems course. This Seventh Edition not only presents the latest and most relevant systems, it also digs deeper to uncover those fundamental concepts that have remained constant throughout the evolution of today’s operation systems. With this strong conceptual foundation in place, students can more easily understand the details related to specific systems.


New Adaptations

  • Increased coverage of OS design throughout.
  • A new chapter on real-time and embedded systems (Chapter 19).
  • A new chapter on multimedia (Chapter 20).
  • Additional coverage of security and protection.
  • Additional coverage of distributed programming.
  • New exercises at the end of each chapter.
  • New programming exercises and projects at the end of each chapter.
  • New student-focused pedagogy and a new two-color design to enhance the learning process.

Prior5 to that, he held a chaired professorship in the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin. His research interest include operating systems, database systems, real-time systems storage systems, network management, and distributed systems.

In addition to his academic and industrial positions, Professor Silberschatz served as a member of the Biodiversity and Ecosystems Panel on President Clinton's Committee of Advisors on Science and Technology, as an advisor for the National Science Foundation, and as a consultant for several private industry companies.

Professor Silberschatz is an ACM Fellow and an IEEE Fellow. He received the 2002 IEEE Taylor L. Booth Education Award the 1998 ACM Karl V. Karlstrom Outstanding Educator Award, the 1997 ACM SIGMOD Contribution Award, and the IEEE Computer Society Outstanding Paper award for the article "Capability Manager", which appeared in the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering. His writings have appeared in numerous ACM and IEEE publications and other professional conferences and journals. He is a coauthor of the textbook Database System Concepts.

Greg Gagne is chair of the Division of Computer Science and Mathematics at Westminster College in Salt Lake City where he has been teaching since 1990. In addition to teaching operating systems, he also teaches computer networks, distributed systems, object-oriented programming, and data structures. He also provides workshops to computer science educators and industry professionals. Professor Gagne's current research interests include next-generation operating systems and distributed computing.

Oppositional Concepts in Computational Intelligence (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Oppositional Concepts in Computational Intelligence (Studies in Computational Intelligence)

This volume is motivated in part by the observation that opposites permeate everything around us, in some form or another. Its study has attracted the attention of countless minds for at least 2500 years. However, due to the lack of an accepted mathematical formalism for opposition it has not been explicitly studied to any great length in...
