Operating Systems: Principles and Practice, Second Edition.|
Thomas Anderson and Michael Dahlin.
Note: Some of you have asked whether you can use the First Edition. The two editions look very similar at 30,000 feet so if you have first edition, feel free to use it at your own risk.
Operating System Concepts (9th Edition)
Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne.
This is the older textbook used in the course from 2001-2011. As a result many of the figures in our lecture notes (the blue and grey ones) come from this book. It is no longer required, but contains an alternative perspective on the same material.
Modern Operating Systems (2nd Edition)
If you would like additional information or a different perspective on the topics covered in this course, this supplemental textbook is an excellent resource.
