We miss you (Operating Systems)

Dear students,

You receive this message because you are registered with my section of Operating Systems course and did not come to the class (lecture) recently.

(This is independent of the exercise submission count. If you have already missed four or more exercise submissions, you are out of luck. Study hard next year).

According to the grading scheme in the syllabus, the class attendance does not count toward your final course grade. However, if you do not come to the class (with enough preparation, off course), it is quite likely that you cannot solve the exercise problems and also perform poorly in the exams. You have been given the same advice twice in the class and this message is the third time. Therefore, the final desicion is left up to you.

If you intend to continue with the class, see you next week.

Best regards,

OS Next Week

Next week, we will proceed to Chapter 6 "Deadlock.". We may also refer to Section 2.5 "Classical IPC Problems" as well as the Sleeping Barber Problem. The Sleeping Barber Problem was in the previous edition of the textbook but removed in the current edition (3rd ed.). You can obtain the scanned pages of the 2nd edtion from here (internal access only).

Academic Dishonesty

Our TA discovered several identical or very similar submissions in recent exercise problems. While discussions and advices among students are encouraged, each student must submit his/her own work. Student must understand and expect that any act of academic dishonesty will result in severe penalty.

This week, we will cover Section 2.4 "Scheduling" in the lecture and will work on the problem related to Section 2.3 "Interprocess Communication" which was the topics of the lecture last week.
