15-712: Advanced Operating Systems & Distributed Systems


Homework #0 (Due: September 16)

There is a homework in the first week of class. This homework is intended to make you review all of the undergraduate OS material that you may have forgotten since you took OS...

Each day each student should submit a summary of the papers assigned for the class. Summaries should be no longer than one page (2-4 paragraphs). It is OK to miss a couple of summaries during the term, however not submitting many summaries will impact student's participation portion of the grade.


A midterm exam is scheduled for October 21.
