Operating Systems Programming is designed to give students experience writing programs in a concurrent programming language. Specifically, it shows how to use the SR concurrent programming language to write programs that use semaphores, monitors, message passing, remote procedure calls, and the rendezvous for an operating systems course. The language can also be used for parallel computing in a shared-memory multiprocessor or a distributed memory cluster environment. The pedagogical orientation of the text helps students understand concepts more clearly; it describes the SR language, presents some examples of SR programs, and provides numerous programming assignments in the form of open student laboratories. Operating Systems Programming is ideal for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in concurrent programming and operating systems courses.show more
