- This course covers basic concepts of operating systems. Among
the topics discussed are the notion of a process, interprocess
communication and synchronization, main memory allocation,
segmentation, paging, virtual memory linking and loading,
scheduling, file systems, and security and privacy. This course is
currently being taught using the NACHOS simulated operating system,
written in C++. Students will extend and modify NACHOS in three or
four large programming projects.
