This course aims to give the student an understanding of what a modern operating system is, and the services it provides. It also discusses some basic issues in operating systems and provides solutions. Topics include multiprogramming, process management, memory management, and file systems.
Students taking this course will gain a comprehensive grounding in the area of multiprogrammed operating systems, including an understanding of the theoretical and practical issues and problems in operating system design. The student will gain an understanding of the needs of computing processes, the services offered by the OS to meet these needs, and how the services are shared between concurrent processes. Lectures will focus on the principles and problems of OS design and will be supplemented by independent reading. Programming exercises (in C) will require the student to implement programs illustrating the principles used in OS design. Basic knowledge of C programming and the UNIX environment is assumed. All course components (lectures, assignments, and exams) will be in an online format. Students must have access to a computer with internet access, and the ability to remotely access the CSIL labs (instructions on how to do so will be provided). Some components of the course may require real-time participation during the scheduled lecture and/or exam times.
- History, Evolution, and Philosophies
- The User's View of Operating System Services
- Tasking and Processes
- Interprocess Communication, Concurrency Control and Resource Allocation
- Scheduling and Dispatch
- Physical and Virtual Memory Organization
- File Systems
- Security and Protection
There will be assignments and multiple quizzes/exams. All assignments and tests will be in an online format. A more detailed marking scheme will be provided in the first class of the semester.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
TEACHING AT SFU IN SUMMER 2021
Teaching at SFU in summer 2021 will be conducted primarily through remote methods, but we will continue to have in-person experiential activities for a selection of courses. Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (firstname.lastname@example.org or 778-782-3112).
