About the Book
The new edition presents the operating system as an intermediary between a computer system and a user, one that provides services to the user and also ensures high system performance. A discussion of the operating systems interactions with the computer, on one hand, and with user computations, on the other hand, consolidates this view and adds practical details to it. This approach demystifies the idea of the operating system and also emphasizes key features of computer architecture that are essential for a study of operating systems.
This edition covers all the fundamental principles of operating system in great detail, including processes, deadlocks, and memory, paging algorithms, disk scheduling and protection thirteen chapters that enable the students not only to learn the principles but its practical application. The students studying BCA & MCA at the undergraduate or graduate level programming courses will significantly benefit from this book. It is also a valuable source of information for general readers.
