Operating systems : a systematic view by William S Davis( Book )

85 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fifth edition of Operating Systems: A Systematic View offers a practical and applied introduction to operating system concepts, aimed at people interested in using (rather than designing) computers, operating systems, and networks. Instead of focusing on OS theory, the authors take a "systematic view" of the subject, where they provide insight into what is going on beneath the surface. The Intent is to show why operating systems are important to users and what, at a functional level, they do." "Readers are guided through some of today's most widely used operating systems, including Linux, UNIX, and Windows 2000. Also included is coverage of several modern topics and technologies, with chapters on the Windows interface, Intel Pentium architecture, and Windows internals, as well as a section on network operating systems with chapters on client/server networks, Windows 2000, Novell, and the Internet."--Jacket

Ova production of American shad in Atlantic coast rivers by William S Davis( Book )

4 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The number of ova produced by American shad (Alosa sapidissima) based on samples of five fish from each of six Atlantic coast rivers was found to range from 209,000 to 616,000 ova per year. Hudson River shad produced fewer ova by size and St. Johns River shad produced more ova by size than did shad from the other four rivers. Statistical evidence is presented to show that the six ovarian samples per fish used to estimate total ova production can be reduced without imparing the accuracy of the total ova production estimate
