Principles of Computer Architecture

Buy

This piece covers computer architecture at the instruction set architecture (ISA) and system design levels. Starting with foundation material on data representation and computer arithmetic, the book moves through the basic components of a computer architecture, covering topics at increasing levels of complexity up through CISC, network architecture, and parallel architecture. The authors have adopted the use of a SPARC-subset for an instructional ISA called "ARC" (A RISC Computer), which is carried through the mainstream of the book, and is complemented with platform-independent software tools that simulate the ARC ISA as well as the MIPS and x86 (Pentium) ISAs.

Our goal in writing this book is to expose the inner workings of the modern digital computer at a level that demystifies what goes on inside the machine. The only prerequisite to Principles of Computer Architecture is a working knowledge of a high-level programming language. The breadth of material has been chosen to cover topics normally found in a first course in computer architecture or computer organization. The breadth and depth of coverage have been steered to place the beginning student on a solid track for continuing studies in computer-related disciplines.

In creating a computer architecture textbook, the technical issues fall into place fairly naturally, and it is the organizational issues that bring important features to fruition. Some of the features that received the greatest attention in Principles of Computer Architecture include the choice of the instruction set architecture (ISA), the use of case studies, and a voluminous use of examples and exercises.

Brain Sense: The Science of the Senses and How We Process the World Around Us
Brain Sense: The Science of the Senses and How We Process the World Around Us
Have you ever wondered why you remember color images and scenes so much better than those in black and white? The answer is in the way our brains interpret and process the sights, smells, tastes, and touches that make up our lives. "Brainsense" explores brain function and the senses, and offers new insight about what makes us tick. Based...
Generalized Hyperbolic Secant Distributions: With Applications to Finance (SpringerBriefs in Statistics)
Generalized Hyperbolic Secant Distributions: With Applications to Finance (SpringerBriefs in Statistics)

​Among the symmetrical distributions with an infinite domain, the most popular alternative to the normal variant is the logistic distribution as well as the Laplace or the double exponential distribution, which was first introduced in 1774. Occasionally, the Cauchy distribution is also used. Surprisingly, the hyperbolic secant...

The Greek Wars: The Failure of Persia
The Greek Wars: The Failure of Persia
THE viewpoint of this book is no longer novel, and the concerns of scholars are different from what they were over four decades ago when I began to lecture on Xenophon and on the Persian Wars. One must salute above all Pierre Briant, but also Amelie Kuhrt and the late Heleen Sancisi-Weerdenburg, to whom all students are much beholden not only for...
