The objective of this course is to
introduce and discuss the concepts, structures and mechanisms of
modern operating systems. Topics include an overview of
operating system fundamentals, process management,
multi-threading, concurrency issues, memory management, virtual
memory, scheduling techniques, I/O management, file management,
security issues, virtual machines, cloud systems, mobile and
embedded operating systems. The course focus will be on
operating systems internals rather than the operating systems
