Designed for the second course in operating systems, usually called advanced operating systems or distributed systems, taught in computer-science and computer-engineering departments, this text provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamental concepts and mechanisms which underlie the design of advanced operating systems. Numerous examples are provided to reinforce the concepts and relevant case studies illustrate the concepts and mechanisms described. Major developments in the systems arena, such as distributed file systems, distributed shared memory, distributed scheduling, recovery, fault-tolerance, multiprocessor systems and database systems, are considered. The work also covers theoretical foundations, including event ordering, mutual exclusion, deadlock detection, agreement problems, process synchronization, security and cryptography.
