CS 7600: Intensive Computer Systems
Lecture - 4 credits
- Studies the structure, components, design, implementation, and internal operation of computer systems, focusing on the operating system level.
- Reviews computer hardware and architecture including the arithmetic and logic unit, and the control unit.
- Covers current operating system components and construction techniques including the memory and memory controller, I/O device management, device drivers, memory management, file system structures, and the user interface.
- Discusses distributed operating systems, real-time systems, and addresses concurrent processes, scheduling, interprocess communication, and synchronization.
- Discusses relevant distributed algorithms.
- Also covers design and analysis techniques for desirable properties in computer systems including functional correctness (in the absence of faults), performance and throughput, fault-tolerance and reliability, real-time response, security, and quality of service.
- Draws examples from real operating systems.
- Emphasizes abstraction, while programming exercises are used to facilitate the understanding of concepts.
