Computer Systems: A Programmer’s Perspective, Global Edition 3rd Edition

Book Description

For courses in and Programming

Computer : A Programmer's Perspective explains the underlying common among all computer systems and how they affect general application performance. Written from the programmer's perspective, this book strives to teach students how understanding basic of computer systems and executing real practice can lead them to create better programs.

Spanning across computer science themes such as architecture, the , and systems , the Third Edition serves as a comprehensive introduction to programming. This book strives to create programmers who understand all elements of computer systems and will be able to engage in any application of the field–from fixing faulty , to writing more capable programs, to avoiding common flaws. It lays the groundwork for students to delve into more intensive topics such as computer architecture, embedded systems, and cybersecurity.

This book focuses on systems that execute an x86-64 machine code, and recommends that students have access to a Linux system for this course. Students should have basic familiarity with C or C++.
