Operating System Concepts – Silberschatz, Galvin – 7th Edition


This bestselling book provides clear coverage of the fundamental concepts of the foundation of operating systems. The fifth edition discusses key concepts that are applicable to a variety of systems, and presents a large number of examples throughout that pertain to UNIX and Solaris 2. The authors include a completely new section on I/O Systems which includes three new chapters on I/O Systems, Secondary Storage Structure, and Tertiary Storage Structure. They also cover two new case studies — WindowsNT and Linux.

Operating System Concepts, now in this edition, continues to provide a solid theoretical foundation for understanding operating systems. The ninth edition has been thoroughly updated to include contemporary examples of how operating systems function. The text includes content to bridge the gap between concepts and actual implementations. End-of-chapter problems, exercises, review questions, and programming exercises help to further reinforce important concepts. A new Virtual Machine provides interactive exercises to help engage students with the material.
