Operating Systems in Depth THOMAS W. DOEPPNER, Brown University, USA.

The goal of this book is to bring together and explain current practice in operating systems.

This includes much of what is traditionally covered in operating-system textbooks: concurrency, scheduling, linking and loading, storage management (both real and virtual), file systems, and security. However, the book also covers issues that come up every day in operating-systems design and implementation but are not often taught in undergraduate courses. For example, the text includes:


• Deferred work, which includes deferred and asynchronous procedure calls in Windows, tasklets in Linux, and interrupt threads in Solaris.

4. Operating-System Design.

• The intricacies of thread switching, on both uniprocessor and multiprocessor systems.

6. File Systems.

• Modern file systems, such as ZFS and WAFL.

8. Security.

• Distributed file systems, including CIFS and NFS version 4.

9. Introduction to Networking.

The book and its accompanying significant programming projects make students come to grips with current operating systems and their major operating-system components and to attain an intimate understanding of how they work.

10. Distributed File Systems.

1. Introduction. 2. Multithreaded Programming. 3. Basic Concepts. 5. Processor Management. 7. Memory Management.

Designed for a one-semester operating-systems course for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. Prerequisites for the course generally include an introductory course on computer architecture and an advanced programming course. Features: • A variety of accompanying projects help students attain an intimate understanding of how the major operating-systems components work. • Organization of Table of Contents helps make a comprehensive programming project possible. For example, Chapter 2 provides a full tutorial on how to write multithreaded programs, both using POSIX threads and Windows threads. Though the material covers such programming from an applicationprogram perspective, both the concepts and the practice apply to programming within an operating system. • Three types of end-of-chapter exercises provide plenty of practice. These include unstarred, starred, and two-starred problems that range from quick and easy review to challenging, exam type problems. 9780471687238 • 444pp • December 2010 • Hbk • £44.99/€54.00

Data Structures Abstraction and Design Using Java 2nd Edition ELLIOT B. KOFFMAN PAUL A. T. WOLFGANG, both of Temple Univesity, USA.

This book lays the foundation for programmers to build their skills.

The focus of the book is placed on how to implement effective programs using the JCF (Java Collections Framework) instead of producing mathematical proofs. The coverage is updated and streamlined to provide a more accessible approach to programming. Students will be able to develop a thorough understanding of basic data structures and algorithms through an objects-first approach. Data structures are discussed in the context of software engineering principles. Updated case studies also show programmers how to apply essential design skills and concepts.



5. Recursion.

• Combines a strong emphasis on problem solving and software design with the study of data structures. After providing the specification (interface) and the implementation (one or more Java classes) case studies are covered that use the data structure to solve significant problems.

6. Trees.

• Focuses on implementing effective programs using the Java Collections Framework and the classes in the framework. The code for these classes follows closely that which is provided in the framework and is not a conversion of code in other programming languages. • Over 20 case studies follow a five-step process (problem specification, analysis, design, implementation, and testing). • Many problems have extensive discussions of testing and include classes and driver methods for testing solutions to case studies.

1. Object-orientated Programming and Class Hierarchies. 2. Lists and the Collection Interface. 3. Stacks. 4. Queues.

7. Sets and Maps. 8. Sorting. 9. Self-Balancing Search Trees. 10. Graphs. Appendix A: Introduction to Java. Appendix B: Overview of UML. Appendix C: Event-Orientated Programming. Appendix D: Testing and Debugging.

• Extensive pedagogy to assist inexperienced programmers in learning the material including boxes on Programming Pitfalls, Design concepts, Programming Practice; Syntax boxes for quick reference; self-check and end-of-section exercises for immediate feedback and practice. 9780470128701 • 832pp • February 2010 • Pbk • £43.99/€52.80

Data Structures and Algorithms Using Python RANCE D. NECAISE, College of William and Mary, USA. A key objective is to provide a “back to basics” approach to learning data structures and algorithms without overwhelming the reader with all of the OOP terminology and concepts. To provide flexibility in topic coverage for a wide variety of courses, the author focuses on data structures and algorithms, while designing the examples to allow the introduction of object-oriented programming if so desired. The book also introduces the concept of algorithm analysis and explores the efficiency of algorithms and data structures throughout the text. Features: • Python (version 3) used to design and implement classes for abstract data types and programs and algorithms. 9780470618295 • 520pp February 2011 • Pbk £34.99/€42.00

• Flexible organization allows coverage of class inheritance as needed or desired. • Introduces students to the basic array structure and the fundamentals of implementing and using multi-dimensional arrays. • The underlying mechanism of many of Python’s built-in data structures and constructs are explored in order to expose the “magic” and to evaluate their efficiency. • Real-world applications of various chapter topics are presented throughout the text to help engage students. • A number of ADTs and applications are presented as threads throughout the text (i.e. the Set, Bag, Matrix, Sparse Matrix, and Map ADTs.) This allows for multiple implementations as new data structures are introduced, which provides the opportunity to reinforce the abstraction concept and for studying algorithm efficiency. Contents: 1 Abstract Data Types. 2 Arrays and Vectors. 3 Algorithm Analysis. 4 The Linked List. 5 Advanced Linked Lists. 6 Stacks. 7 Queues. 8 Hash Tables. 9 Recursion. 10 Binary Trees and Heaps. 11 Advanced Search Trees. 12 Sorting Algorithms.

9780470482674 • 768pp February 2011 • Hbk £42.99/€51.60

Instead of emphasizing the underlying mathematics to get programmers to build their own data structures, Collins enables programmers to manipulate existing structures in the Java Collections Library – learning through coding rather than by doing proofs. 23 lab projects and hundreds of programming examples are integrated throughout the pages to build their intuition. The approach this book takes helps programmers quickly learn the concepts that underlie data structures. Features: • Where necessary, the author includes approaches that differ from those in the Framework including a separate section on open addressing, and a discussion of the trade-offs of one design over the other. • Students have the opportunity to develop their own data structures via programming projects in which data structures are either created “from the ground up” or extended from examples in the chapters. • 23 Web Labs promote active learning and provide reinforcement of the text material. The labs encourage the use the scientific method, and each lab is set up as an experiment. • There are hundreds of programming exercises and more than 30 programming projects. Contents: Introduction to Java. 1 Object Oriented Concepts. 2 Additional Features of Java. 3 Analysis of Algorithms. 4 The Java Collections Framework. 5 Recursion. 6 Array-Based Lists. 7 Linked Lists. 8 Stacks and Queues. 9 Binary Trees. 10 Binary Search Trees. 11 Sorting. 12 Tree Maps and Tree Sets. 13 Priority Queues. 14 Hashing. 15 Graphs, Trees and Networks.
