  • Nanotechnology is an often misunderstood term. Say the word, and you are likely to elicit various conceptions from complete ignorance of the term to the fear of a science fiction type mass assembler that threatens the world. 2 The term has come to mean different things to different people. “Nano” is a prefix meaning one-billionth. In distance, a nanometer is one billionth of a meter. As illustration, a human hair is 100,000 nanometers (nm) in width. A red blood cell measures approximately 5,000 nm across. Ten hydrogen atoms, lined up side by side, if...

  • This chapter discusses the various forms of return encountered in investment management. Among the return types discussed are required returns, which will be used later in the text for equity valuation. The required return is what the investor expects to earn on an investment, given the investment’s risk. To determine the required return, we will use several different models, such as the capital asset pricing model (CAPM).

  • Chapter 4 - Processes, now includes coverage of multitasking in mobile operating systems, support for the multiprocess model in Google’s Chrome web browser, and zombie and orphan processes in UNIX. The objectives of this chapter are to introduce the notion of a process a program in execution, which forms the basis of all computation; to describe the various features of processes, including scheduling, creation, and termination; to explore interprocess communication using shared memory and mes- sage passing.

  • A cooperating process is one that can affect or be affected by other processes executing in the system. Cooperating processes can either directly share a logical address space (that is, both code and data) or be allowed to share data only through files or messages. The former case is achieved through the use of threads, discussed in chapter 4. Concurrent access to shared data may result in data inconsistency, however.

  • In this chapter, we discuss various ways to manage memory. The memory- management algorithms vary from a primitive bare-machine approach to paging and segmentation strategies. Each approach has its own advantages and disadvantages. Selection of a memory-management method for a specific system depends on many factors, especially on the hardware design of the system. As we shall see, many algorithms require hardware support, leading many systems to have closely integrated hardware and operating-system memory management.

  • In chapter 7, we discussed various memory-management strategies used in computer systems. All these strategies have the same goal: to keep many processes in memory simultaneously to allow multiprogramming. However, they tend to require that an entire process be in memory before it can execute. Virtual memory is a technique that allows the execution of processes that are not completely in memory. In this chapter, we discuss virtual memory in the form of demand paging and examine its complexity and cost.

  • In this chapter, we consider the various aspects of files and the major directory structures. We also discuss the semantics of sharing files among multiple processes, users, and computers. Finally, we discuss ways to handle file protection, necessary when we have multiple users and we want to control who may access files and how files may be accessed.

  • Chapter 16 looks at the current major research and development in distributed-file systems (DFS). The purpose of a DFS is to support the same kind of sharing when the files are physically dispersed among the various sites of a distributed system.

  • Chapter 17 examines various mechanisms for process synchronization and communication, as well as methods for dealing with the deadlock problem, in a distributed environment. In addition, since a distributed system may suffer from a variety of failures that are not encountered in a centralized system, we also discuss here the issue of failure in a distributed system.

  • The various processes in an operating system must be protected from one another’s activities. For that purpose, various mechanisms exist that can be used to ensure that the files, memory segments, CPU, and other resources can be operated on by only those processes that have gained proper authorization from the operating system. In this chapter, we examine the problem of protection in great detail and develop a unifying model for implementing protection.

  • Computer simulation has become an essential par t of science and engineering. Digital analysis of components, in particular, is important when developing new products or optimizing designs. Today a broad spectrum of options for simulation is available; researchers use everything from basic programming languages to various high-level packages implementing advanced methods. Though each of these techniques has its own unique attributes, they all share a common concern: Can you rely on the results?...

  • In this module we are going to cover various aspects of IP. We are going to start by looking at one of the most common protocol stacks: The OSI protocol stack and look at how communications is broken down into seven core areas. We are then going to compare the seven layer OSI stack with the TCP/IP protocol stack. Then, we are going to cover numbering systems and see how to translate between decimal and binary.

  • Planning involves selecting a course of action and specifying how the action will be implemented. The first step in planning is to identify the various alternatives. Next, the alternative that does the best job of furthering the organization’s objectives is selected. Management’s plans are usually expressed in budgets. Typically, budgets are prepared annually under the direction of the controller, who is the manager of the accounting department.

  • This group constitutes the majority of dietary antioxidants (and also of secondary plant metabolites). Plants typically produce polyphenols as a defence against herbivores and various stresses in general. It is estimated that in Westernized countries, polyphenol intake is approx. 0.4-1g/d and capita (reviewed by Bouayed and Bohn, 2010), with higher intake for persons following a vegetarian diet. Food sources that are especially rich in polyphenols include, among others, potato, plums, leafy vegetables, whole grain products, and coffee (Souci et al., 2000). ...
