CSEP 551: Computer Operating Systems
A study of developments in operating systems from the 196' s to the present. Topics include operating system structure, protection, virtual memory, communication mechanisms, concurrency, lightweight threads, object-oriented systems, distributed systems, and transaction support in operating systems. Prerequisite: CSE majors only.
CSEP 561: Network Systems
Current choices and challenges in network systems. Fundamental concepts combined with emphasis on evaluation of design/operations alternatives. Topics include alternative link, network, and transport-layer technologies, topologies, routing, congestion control multimedia, Ipv6, aTM v. IP, network management and policy issues. Prerequisite: CSE majors only.
CSE 550: Computer Systems Explores computer system design, implementation, and evaluation. Covers principles, techniques, and examples related to the construction of computer systems, including concepts that span network systems, operating systems, web servers, parallel computing, and databases. Prerequisite: CSE 451.
