Learn about memory management within operating systems.
Operating Systems - Introduction to Memory Management that will teach you about the different models for memory management. You will learn about virtual memory and segmentation the more modern versions of memory management compared to the models. You will learn about booting up a computer system and how and what it loads up till it gets to the user’s process.
The course begins by introducing you to memory management in a computer system. You will learn about the single contiguous model and the partition model for memory management. You will learn about virtual memory, its structure and how the virtual address is mapped to a physical one.
Next, you will be introduced to segmentation. You will learn how segmentation is more logical in dividing up a process compared to virtual memory. You will also learn how segmentation maps to physical addresses. You will learn about the structure of the xv6 operating systems memory and about the booting process when a computer system is powered on.
This course will be of great interest to computer science students and computer engineers, and anyone who wants to learn more about memory management in computer operating systems.
Prerequisites: Learner will need to have completed the previous course Introduction to Operating Systems.
