Overview

Written by a renowned expert, Real-Time Systems provides professionals and students with a comprehensive treatment of real-time computing and communication systems. The book covers the most recent advances in real-time operating systems and communications networks. Thus, this book serves as a vehicle for technology transition within the real-time systems community of systems architects, designers, chief scientists and technologists, and systems analysts. Jane Liu's subject matter and adept treatment provide an engaging learning environment for students as well. With real-time systems, the technologies at play include telecommunication, signal processing, command and control, and digital control. Their applications have particular relevance to day-to-day operations, such as engine and break mechanisms in cars, traffic light operations, flight control and air-traffic control, and heart beat and blood pressure monitoring.

Real-Time Systems is both a valuable reference for professionals and an advanced text for Computer Science and Computer Engineering students.

  • Real world real-time applications based on research and practice
  • State-of-the-art algorithms and methods for validation
  • Methods for end-to-end scheduling and resource management
  • More than 100 illustrations to enhance understanding
  • Comprehensive treatment of the technology known as RMA (rate-monotonic analysis) methods
