For courses in Computer Science and Programming Computer systems: A Programmer's Perspective explains the underlying elements common among all computer systems and how they affect general application performance. Written from the programmer's perspective, this book strives to teach readers how understanding basic elements of computer systems and executing real practice can lead them to create better programs.
Spanning across computer science themes such as hardware architecture, the operating system, and systems software, the Third Edition serves as a comprehensive introduction to programming. This book strives to create programmers who understand all elements of computer systems and will be able to engage in any application of the field--from fixing faulty software, to writing more capable programs, to avoiding common flaws. It lays the groundwork for readers to delve into more intensive topics such as computer architecture, embedded systems, and cybersecurity.
This book focuses on systems that execute an x machine code, and recommends that programmers have access to a Linux system for this course. Also available with MasteringEngineering MasteringEngineering is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results through personalized learning. This innovative online program emulates the instructor's office hour environment, engaging and guiding students through engineering concepts with self-paced individualized coaching With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts.
Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. Linux: The Textbook, Second Edition provides comprehensive coverage of the contemporary use of the Linux operating system for every level of student or practitioner, from beginners to advanced users. The second edition of the book includes extensive updates and new chapters on system administration for desktop, stand-alone PCs, and server-class computers; API for system programming, including thread programming with pthreads; virtualization methodologies; and an extensive tutorial on systemd service management.
An author-hosted GitHub website also features updates, further references, and errata. The fourth edition of this work provides a readable, tutorial based introduction to the subject of computer hardware for undergraduate computer scientists and engineers and includes a companion website to give lecturers additional notes.
Digital Design and Computer Organization introduces digital design as it applies to the creation of computer systems. It summarizes the tools of logic design and their mathematical basis, along with in depth coverage of combinational and sequential circuits.
The book includes an accompanying CD that includes the majority of circuits highlighted in the text, delivering you hands-on experience in the simulation and observation of circuit functionality. These circuits were designed and tested with a user-friendly Electronics Workbench package Multisim Textbook Edition that enables your progression from truth tables onward to more complex designs.
This volume differs from traditional digital design texts by providing a complete design of an AC-based CPU, allowing you to apply digital design directly to computer architecture. The book makes minimal reference to electrical properties and is vendor independent, allowing emphasis on the general design principles.
Written for students taking their first course in computer systems architecture, this is an introductory textbook that meets syllabus requirements in a simple manner without being a weighty tome.
The project is based around the simulation of a typical simple microprocessor so that students gain an understanding of the fundamental concepts of computer architecture on which they can build to understand the more advanced facilities and techniques employed by modern day microprocessors.
Each chapter includes a worked exercise, end-of-chapter exercises, and definitions of key words in the margins. If you know basic high-school math, you can quickly learn and apply the core concepts of computer science with this concise, hands-on book.
Each chapter builds on material introduced earlier in the book, so you can master one core building block before moving on to the next. Learn how to write algorithms to solve real-world problems Understand the basics of computer architecture Examine the basic tools of a programming language Explore sequential, conditional, and loop programming structures Understand how the array data structure organizes storage Use searching techniques and comparison-based sorting algorithms Learn about objects, including how to build your own Discover how objects can be created from other objects Manipulate files and use their data in your software.
Presents the aim of the annual ALENEX workshop, which is to provide a forum for the presentation of original research in the implementation and experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures.
