Operating Systems, Spring 2002
Instructor: Prof. Ying-Dar Lin

Course Objective:
This course covers classic materials of modern operating systems which control
computer hardware to provide services to application programs. After a brief
overview of computer systems and operating systems, we review key operating
system components, namely processes, memory, file systems, and I/O systems, along
with algorithms to manage these components. The lectures are concluded with two
case studies on Linux and Windows 2000. In addition to midterm and final exams,
two quizzes and two homework sets are interleaved to guide your study schedule. For
hands-on training, we assign two mini-projects which require written reports and your
demonstration to the TAs.
Pre-requisite: C Programming, Data Structures
Textbook: Silberschatz, Galvin, Gagne, Operating System Concepts, Sixth Edition,
Wiley, 2002.
