Introduction to Computing Systems

Author: Yale N. Patt
ISBN: 0072376902
Release Date: 2001
Genre: C# (Computer program language)

The reason most people do not understand their first programming language is because they are forced to memorize technical details. They do not understand the basic underpinnings. This book is based on the premise that starting with a high-level programming language has its shortcomings. This premise lead to Patt/Patel's "bottom-up approach" found in Introduction in Computing.

Introduction to Computing Systems

Author: Yale N. Patt
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Science, Engineering & Mathematics
ISBN: 0072440392
Release Date: 2000-09-01
Genre: Education

This book is based on the premise that starting with a high level programming language is not the best approach. The reason most students do not understand a programming language when they take it as a first course is because they are forced to memorize technical details. They do not understand the basic underpinnings of how a computer works. The result of this thought is the motivated bottom-up approach found in Patt/Patel's Introduction To Computing Systems. This text starts with the logic structures and architecture of a computer and moves up to the application software that runs on it. The book covers in turn: switch level abstraction of a MOS Transistor, Logic Gates, latches, logic structures (MUX, Decoder, Adder, gated latches), finally culminating in an implementation of memory. From there, the book moves on to the Von Neumann model of execution, then a simple computer (the LC-2), machine language programming, assembly language, assemblers and then assembly language programming of the LC-2. The book then moves to the high level language C, recursion, and finally elementary data structures. The book establishes a foundation that every subsequent course in the computer science or computer engineering curriculum can benefit from and build on.

Data Structures and Other Objects Using Java

Author: Michael Main
Publisher: Pearson Higher Ed
ISBN: 9780133001914
Release Date: 2011-11-21
Genre: Computers

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Data Structures and Other Objects Using Java is a gradual, "just-in-time" introduction to Data Structures for a CS2 course. Each chapter provides a review of the key aspects of object-oriented programming and a syntax review, giving students the foundation for understanding significant programming concepts. With this framework they are able to accomplish writing functional data structures by using a five-step method for working with data types; understanding the data type abstractly, writing a specification, using the data type, designing and implementing the data type, and analyzing the implementation. Students learn to think analytically about the efficiency and efficacy of design while gaining exposure to useful Java classes libraries.

The Physics of Computing

Author: Marilyn Wolf
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9780128096161
Release Date: 2016-10-16
Genre: Computers

The Physics of Computing gives a foundational view of the physical principles underlying computers. Performance, power, thermal behavior, and reliability are all harder and harder to achieve as transistors shrink to nanometer scales. This book describes the physics of computing at all levels of abstraction from single gates to complete computer systems. It can be used as a course for juniors or seniors in computer engineering and electrical engineering, and can also be used to teach students in other scientific disciplines important concepts in computing. For electrical engineering, the book provides the fundamentals of computing that link core concepts to computing. For computer science, it provides foundations of key challenges such as power consumption, performance, and thermal. The book can also be used as a technical reference by professionals. Links fundamental physics to the key challenges in computer design, including memory wall, power wall, reliability Provides all of the background necessary to understand the physical underpinnings of key computing concepts Covers all the major physical phenomena in computing from transistors to systems, including logic, interconnect, memory, clocking, I/O

Security in Computing Systems

Author: Joachim Biskup
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783540784425
Release Date: 2008-11-14
Genre: Computers

This monograph on Security in Computing Systems: Challenges, Approaches and Solutions aims at introducing, surveying and assessing the fundamentals of se- rity with respect to computing. Here, “computing” refers to all activities which individuals or groups directly or indirectly perform by means of computing s- tems, i. e. , by means of computers and networks of them built on telecommuni- tion. We all are such individuals, whether enthusiastic or just bowed to the inevitable. So, as part of the ‘‘information society’’, we are challenged to maintain our values, to pursue our goals and to enforce our interests, by consciously desi- ing a ‘‘global information infrastructure’’ on a large scale as well as by approp- ately configuring our personal computers on a small scale. As a result, we hope to achieve secure computing: Roughly speaking, computer-assisted activities of in- viduals and computer-mediated cooperation between individuals should happen as required by each party involved, and nothing else which might be harmful to any party should occur. The notion of security circumscribes many aspects, ranging from human qua- ties to technical enforcement. First of all, in considering the explicit security requirements of users, administrators and other persons concerned, we hope that usually all persons will follow the stated rules, but we also have to face the pos- bility that some persons might deviate from the wanted behavior, whether ac- dently or maliciously.

Computer Systems

Author: Umakishore Ramachandran
ISBN: 0321624807
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Computer architecture

In the early days of computing, hardware and software systems were designed separately. Today, as multicore systems predominate, this separation is becoming impractical.Computer Systems examines the key elements of all computer systems using an integrated approach that treats hardware and software as part of the same, larger system. Students gain important insights into the interplay between hardware and software and leave the course with a better understanding of a modern computer system
