A Short Introduction to Operating Systems
by Mark Burgess
Number of pages: 140
These are the lecture notes of Operating Systems, courtesy of Mark Burgess, a full professor at the Faculty of Engineering of University College Oslo, Norway. The notes cover most of the basic topics of operating systems, many which have only been covered superficially. Nevertheless, readers will find these lecture notes as a decent introduction material that should give them a good grasp on the subject of operating systems.

A textbook that introduces the principles of synchronization for concurrent programming. It identifies patterns that are useful for a variety of synchronization problems and then show how they can be assembled into solutions.
The purpose of this book is to provide a neutral view of as many Operating Systems as possible. This book strives to provide solid information on Operating Systems without the ever-prevalent 'distribution/Operating System bias'.
