Operating Systems, Database and Distributed Systems: An Integrated Approach

Second Edition

Jean Bacon

Concurrent Systems presents a modern approach to software systems, ideally suited to the needs of today¿s students and programmers. It focuses on those concepts in concurrency that play a vital role in the design of operating systems, database systems, distributed systems and communication networks.

Key features of the book include:

· an exceptionally clear introduction to operating systems emphasizes the fundamental concept of process while also covering traditional operating system functions

· the principles of concurrency are developed from simple shared memory systems through to modern multiprocessor and distributed environments

· an evolution of the concepts leads naturally to transactions, to concurrency control and to recovery for distributed databases

· an object-oriented paradigm is used as a unifying framework throughout

· case studies in UNIX, the Mach and CHORUS microkernels, and a transaction processing system show how designs are implemented in practice

Concurrent Systems is an ideal text for undergraduates on operating systems courses that focus on the central role of concurrency in modern software technology. Programmers, software engineers and systems designers will also gain new insights into the integrated nature of modern system software.
