A DIALOGUE ON LABS

A DIALOGUE ON LABS

Student: Is this our final dialogue? Professor: I hope so! You’ve been becoming quite a pain, you know! Student: Yes, I’ve enjoyed our conversations too. What’s up here? Professor: It’s about the projects you should be doing as you learn this material; you know, actual programming, where you do some real work instead of this incessant talking and reading. The real way to learn! Student: Sounds important. Why didn’t you tell me earlier? Professor: Well, hopefully those using this book actually do look at this part earlier, all throughout the course. If not, they’re really missing something. Student: Seems like it. So what are the projects like? Professor: Well, there are two types of projects. The first set are what you might call systems programming projects, done on machines running Linux and in the C programming environment. This type of programming is quite useful to know, as when you go off into the real world, you very well might have to do some of this type of hacking yourself. Student: What’s the second type of project? Professor: The second type is based inside a real kernel, a cool little teaching kernel developed at MIT called xv6. It is a “port” of an old version of UNIX to Intel x86, and is quite neat! With these projects, instead of writing code that interacts with the kernel (as you do in systems programming), you actually get to re-write parts of the kernel itself! Student: Sounds fun! So what should we do in a semester? You know, there are only so many hours in the day, and as you professors seem to forget, we students take four or five courses, not just yours! Professor: Well, there is a lot of flexibility here. Some classes just do all systems programming, because it is so practical. Some classes do all xv6 hacking, because it really gets you to see how operating systems work. And some, as you may have guessed, do a mix, starting with some systems programming, and then doing xv6 at the end. It’s really up to the professor of a particular class.

PREFACE :VIRTUALIZATION,CONCURRENCY, ANDPERSISTENCE

PREFACE :VIRTUALIZATION,CONCURRENCY, ANDPERSISTENCE

To Everyone Welcome to this book We hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it. The book is called Operating Systems: Three Easy Pieces, and the title is obviously an homage to one of the greatest sets of lecture notes ever created, by one Richard Feynman on the topic of Physics F96. While this book will undoubtedly fall short of the high standard set by that famous physicist, perhaps it will be good enough for you in your quest to understand what operating systems (and more generally, systems) are all about. The three easy pieces refer to the three major thematic elements the book is organized around: virtualization, concurrency, andpersistence. In discussing these concepts, we’ll end up discussing most of the important things an operating system does; hopefully, you’ll also have some fun along the way. Learning new things is fun, right? At least, it should be. Each major concept is divided into a set of chapters, most of which present a particular problem and then show how to solve it. The chapters are short, and try (as best as possible) to reference the source material where the ideas really came from. One of our goals in writing this book is to make the paths of history as clear as possible, as we think that helps a student understand what is, what was, and what will be more clearly. In this case, seeing how the sausage was made is nearly as important as understanding what the sausage is good for1. There are a couple devices we use throughout the book which are probably worth introducing here. The first is the crux of the problem. Anytime we are trying to solve a problem, we first try to state what the most important issue is; such a crux of the problem is explicitly called out in the text, and hopefully solved via the techniques, algorithms, and ideas presented in the rest of the text. In many places, we’ll explain how a system works by showing its behavior over time. These timelines are at the essence of understanding; if you know what happens, for example, when a process page faults, you are on your way to truly understandinghowvirtualmemoryoperates. Ifyoucomprehendwhattakesplace when a journaling file system writes a block to disk, you have taken the first steps towards mastery of storage systems. There are also numerous asides and tips throughout the text, adding a little color to the mainline presentation. Asides tend to discuss something relevant (but perhaps not essential) to the main text; tips tend to be general lessons that can be applied to systems you build. An index at the end of the book lists all of these tips and asides (as well as cruces, the odd plural of crux) for your convenience. We use one of the oldest didactic methods, the dialogue, throughout the book, as a way of presenting some of the material in a different light. These are used to introduce the major thematic concepts (in a peachy way, as we will see), as well as to review material every now and then. They are also a chance to write in a more humorous style. Whether you find them useful, or humorous, well, that’s another matter entirely. Atthebeginningofeachmajorsection, we’llfirstpresentanabstractionthatan operating system provides, and then work in subsequent chapters on the mechanisms, policies, and other support needed to provide the abstraction. Abstractions are fundamental to all aspects of Computer Science, so it is perhaps no surprise that they are also essential in operating systems. Throughout the chapters, we try to use real code (not pseudocode) where possible, so for virtually all examples, you should be able to type them up yourself and run them. Running real code on real systems is the best way to learn about operating systems, so we encourage you to do so when you can. In various parts of the text, we have sprinkled in a few homeworks to ensure that you are understanding what is going on. Many of these homeworks are little simulations of pieces of the operating system; you should download the homeworks, and run them to quiz yourself. The homework simulators have the following feature: by giving them a different random seed, you can generate a virtually infinite set of problems; the simulators can also be told to solve the problems for you. Thus, you can test and retest yourself until you have achieved a good level of understanding. The most important addendum to this book is a set of projects in which you learn about how real systems work by designing, implementing, and testing your own code. All projects (as well as the code examples, mentioned above) are in the C programming languageKR88; C is a simple and powerful language that underlies most operating systems, and thus worth adding to your toolchest of languages. Two types of projects are available (see the online appendix for ideas). The first are systems programming projects; these projects are great for those who are new to C and UNIX and want to learn how to do lowlevel C programming. The second type are based on a real operating system kernel developed at MIT called xv6 CK+08; these projects are great for students that already have some C andwanttogettheirhandsdirtyinsidetheOS.AtWisconsin,we’verunthecourse in three different ways: either all systems programming, all xv6 programming, or a mix of both.

CARPERS UNDERSTANDING THE LAW 7TH EDITION MCKINSEY TEST BANK

There are two due process clauses in the Constitution, one in the Fifth Amendment that appliesto federal government and one in the Fourteenth Amendment that applies to state and localgovernment. These clauses require that individuals deprived of life liberty or property be given dueprocess of the law. The clauses have been highly debated and extensively interpreted. Generallythe clauses require a fair hearing and treatment for many interests, especially individuals accused ofa crime, or some form of a fair opportunity to defend one’s interest.9.Read the following story: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/navy-seals-killed-bin-laden-fearedrisk/story?id=13605817. Now, assume a media outlet acquired the names of the Navy Seals whowere involved in the Abbottabad raid. Make an argument either 1) that a prior restraint is justifiedto preclude the release of the names or 2) that it is not justifiable. Support your answer with theFirst Amendment law of prior restraints. Subsequently, the point man on the team wrote a bookabout their mission, No Easy Day. http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/navy-seal-shot-osama-bin-ladensight/story?id=17200191. Why couldn’t the government stop publication of the book?Answer:Fear of retribution by local terrorist cells could jeopardize the Seals, distract their attention, andinhibit them from performing their duties. The failure to issue a prior restraint would jeopardizenational security because it would discourage anyone from serving in such a capacity in the futurefor fear that a subsequent release of their names would endanger themselves and their families forthe rest of their lives. On the other hand, in the absence of proof of immediate, irrevocable damageto the Nation, the media should have access to the names of the individuals because who they are iscertainly truthful and newsworthy information. The general argument against prior restraints is that,for there to be an effective restraint upon executive branch policy and power in national defense,there must be an enlightened citizenry, and that without an informed and free press, there cannot bean enlightened citizenry. For that reason, it would be difficult for the government to stop thepublication of information about the raid after it had occurred, even though it may be of interest toour enemies.10.

Introduction to food engineering, fourth edition

INTRODUCTION TO FOOD ENGINEERING, FOURTH EDITION

Nine out of ten Food Science students would probably claim the Food Engineering course as the most diffi cult one in their undergraduate curriculum. Although part of the diffi culty may be related to how food engineering is taught, much of the diffi culty with food engineering stems from the nature of the material. It’s not necessarily that food engineering concepts are more diffi cult than other food science concepts, but food engineering is based on derivations of equations, and the quantitative manipulation of those equations to solve problems. From word problems to integral calculus, the skills required to master food engineering concepts are diffi cult for many Food Science students. However, these concepts are integral to the required competencies for an IFTapproved Food Science program, and are the cornerstone for all of food processing and manufacturing. It is critical that Food Science graduates have a good understanding of engineering principles, both because they are likely to need the concepts during the course of their career but also because they will most certainly need to interact with engineers in an educated manner. Food Science graduates who can use quantitative engineering approaches will stand out from their coworkers in the fi eld. Fortunately, two of the leading food engineers, Paul Singh and Dennis Heldman, have teamed up to write a textbook that clearly and simply presents the complex engineering material that Food Scientists need to know to be successful. In this fourth edition of a classic Food Engineering textbook, Singh and Heldman have once again improved the book even further. New chapters on process control, food packaging, and process operations like fi ltration, centrifugation and mixing now supplement the classic chapters on mass and energy balances, thermodynamics, heat transfer and fl uid fl ow. Furthermore, numerous problems have now been solved with MATLAB, an engineering mathematical problem solver, to enhance student’s math skills. A good textbook should clearly and concisely present material needed by the students and at a level appropriate to their backgrounds. With chapters that are broken down into short, manageable sections that promote learning, the easytofollow explanations in the 4th Edition of Singh and Heldman are aimed at the perfect level for Food Scientists. Numerous example problems, followed by practice problems, help students test their understanding of the concepts. With fi fteen chapters that cover the fundamental aspects of engineering and their practical application to foods, this book is an ideal text for courses in both food engineering and food processing. It will also serve as a useful reference for Food Science graduates throughout their career. Richard W. Hartel Professor of Food Engineering University of WisconsinMadison Foreword

Listening and speaking resource book

Listening and speaking resource book

This book builds on the original First Steps speaking and listening text (formerly known as the Oral Language Resource Book) by drawing on contemporary research and developments in the field of spoken language and its importance for students’ social and academic development. The new Speaking and Listening Resource Book, used in conjunction with the First Steps Speaking and Listening Map of Development Second Edition, has a strong focus on supporting teachers as they implement a dynamic interactive model of speaking and listening. The First Steps Speaking and Listening Resource Book will help teachers focus on the explicit teaching of the different forms of spoken language; speaking and listening processes, strategies and conventions; and the contextual aspects associated with composing and understanding oral texts. Teachers will find the information relevant for all phases of speaking and listening development, and will be able to apply the ideas and suggestions with all students in their classroom. CDROM icons appear throughout the First Steps Speaking and Listening Resource Book. They indicate that a practical format is available on the Speaking and Listening CDROM (included in the First Steps Speaking and Listening Map of Development Second Edition). The CDROM contains activity formats, recording sheets and resource lists, as well as teaching, learning and assessment frameworks. The First Steps Linking Assessment, Teaching and Learning book is also a useful companion resource.

FUNDAMENTALS OF FLUID FILM LUBRICATION 2ED

FUNDAMENTALS OF FLUID FILM LUBRICATION 2ED

In order to keep the text the same length as the first edition four chapters hadto be eliminated in the second edition.The organization of the text is such that it is divided into three parts. Thefirst part covers the fundamentals required in understanding fluid film lubrication. That is, an understanding of surface characterization (Chapter 3), lubricant properties (Chapter 4), bearing materials (Chapter 5), viscous flow (Chapter G), and the Reynolds equation (Chapter 7) is important in understandingfluid film lubrication. The second part of the book then covers hydrodynamiclubrication (Chapters 8 to 16), and the third part covers elastohydrodynamiclubrication (Chapters 17 to 23).Copyright © 2004 Marcel Dekker, Inc.FUNDAMENTALS OF FLUID FILM LUBRICATIONHydrodynamic lubrication can be achieved by sliding motion (as discussedin Chapters 8 to 11), by squeeze motion (as discussed in Chapter 12), and byexternal pressurization (as discussed in Chapter 13). Generally, in hydrodynamic lubrication, oil is the lubricant. However, as discussed in Chapters 14and 15, gas can be an effective lubricant in certain applications.The treatment of elastohydrodynamic lubrication begins with the consideration of elasticity effects in Chapters 17 and 18. Elastohydrodynamic lubrication of rectangular conjunctions is considered in Chapter 19 and of ellipticalconjunctions in Chapter 20. Film thicknesses for different fluid film lubrication regimes are presented in Chapter 21. In Chapters 22 and 23 the theory oflubrication is applied to a range of lubricated conjunctions: in roller and ballbeaj'ings: between a ball and a Hat plate; between concave and convex surfaces;in power transmission devices such as involute gears and variable-speed drives;between a railway wheel and wet or oily rails; in manufacturing operations; andfinally, in synovial joints.Throughout the book emphasis is given to deriving formulas from basic theory and providing physical understanding of these formulas. Although at timesthis proves to be lengthy, the authors believe it is important that the readerdevelop a firm understanding of how information provided in design charts hasbeen obtained. Also the importance and influence of the assumptions made inall derivations based on the theory are discussed. The assumptions emphasizethe limits to which the results of the derivations are valid and applicable. The

CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY ROY CHUDLEY AND ROGER GREENO

This book originated over 30 years ago as two separate publications. The two were combined to create a single volume at the last edition. The continuing success and popularity of this study resource can be attributed to contributions from numerous sources, but unfortunately space does not permit credit to them all. Much can be attributed to the observations and suggestions of some of my former colleagues, professional associates and not least the positive response of so many of my past students. The book’s agreeable presentation of comprehensive text and simple illustration is attributed to the late Colin Bassett as General Editor and of course, Roy Chudley as founding author. I am especially grateful to Roy for his cooperation, trust and permission to work on his original manuscript and hope that my attempts to emulate his illustrative style bear some comparison with his original work. Without the publisher, the book would not exist. The enthusiasm and support of the staff at Pearson Education is appreciated; in particular that of Pauline Gillett for her direction and patience throughout the preparation of this latest edition.

structural and Stress analysis phân tích cấu trúc và áp lực

STRUCTURAL AND STRESS ANALYSIS PHÂN TÍCH CẤU TRÚC VÀ ÁP LỰC

This book is not intended to be an additional textbook of structural and stress analysis for students who have already been offered many excellent textbooks which are available on the market. Instead of going through rigorous coverage of the mathematics and theories, this book summarizes major concepts and important points that should be fully understood before students claim that they have successfully completed the subject. One of the main features of this book is that it aims at helping students to understand the subject through asking and answering conceptual questions, in addition to solving problems based on applying the derived formulas. It has been found that by the end of a Structural and Stress Analysis course, most of our students can follow the instructions given by their lecturers and can solve problems if they can identify suitable formulas. However, they may not necessarily fully understand what they are trying to solve and what is really meant by the solution they have obtained. For example, they may have found the correct value of a stress, but may not understand what is meant by “stress”. They may be able to find the direction of a principal stress if they know the formula, but may not be able to give a rough prediction of the direction without carrying out a calculation. To address these issues, understanding all the important concepts of structures and stresses is essential. Unfortunately, this has not been appropriately highlighted in the mainstream textbooks since the ultimate task of these textbooks is to establish the fundamental theories of the subject and to show the students how to derive and use the formulas. Leaving out all the detailed mathematics and theories found in textbooks, each chapter of this book begins with a summary of key issues and relevant formulas. This is followed by a key points review to identify important concepts that are essential for students’ understanding of the chapter. Next, numerical examples are used to illustrate these concepts and the application of the formulas. A short discussion of the problem is always provided before following the solution procedure to make sure that students know not only how but also why a formula should be used in such a way. Unlike most of the textbooks available on the market, this book asks students to answer only questions that require minimum or no numerical calculations. Questions requiring extensive numerical calculations are not duplicated here since they can be easily found from other textbooks. The conceptual questions ask students to review important concepts and test their understanding of the concepts. These questions can also be used by lecturers to organize group discussions in the class. At the end of each chapter, there is a mini test including both conceptual and numerical questions. Due to the abovementioned features, this book is written to be used with a textbook of your choice, as a useful companion. It is particularly useful when students are preparing for their examinations. Asking and answering these conceptual questions and reviewing the key points summarized in this book is a structured approach to assess whether or not the subject xii Preface has been understood and to identify the area where further revision is needed. The book is also a useful reference for those who are taking an advanced Structural and Stress Analysis course. It provides a quick recovery of the theories and important concepts that have been learnt in the past, without the need to pick up those from a more detailed and, indeed, thicker textbook
