CS 6411 - Systems Principles

Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: CS 4410 .

A. Lorenzo.

The design of computer systems is driven by a small number of principles that are leveraged to achieve both functionality and performance. These principles, and the key techniques used to instantiate them, are the subject of this course. We will study them both in isolation and in the context of systems in which they have been applied. Examples will be drawn from computer architecture and organization, operating systems, database management systems, computer networks, and distributed systems. A final paper or project will be due on which the course grade will be based. It will be either an independent study with final paper and presentation, or a software project and presentation, at the students’ choice.
