CSC 501 (002) Fall 2017 Operating Systems Principles Course
CSC 501 (002) Fall 2017 Operating Systems Principles
Course description:
This course will describe the principles of designing operating systems. Topics include multithreading, synchronization, scheduling, virtual memory, and distributed systems including
clusters. This course will be based on textbook & paper readings, paper discussions, projects, a
midterm exam, a final exam and in-class participations. The purpose of this course is to teach
computer software system structures from a design point of view. We will look at different
structuring techniques, and we will examine their usage in both important historical systems and
in modern systems. In addition to learning about different system structures and different
operating systems, you will learn:
1. How to read a research paper in an objective manner.
2. How to articulate your understanding of and insights into a research paper.
3. How to synthesize research themes and topics across multiple papers.
4. How to apply paper ideas into real systems.
