The final 21st chapter is a wonderful coverage of paradigms contrasting the von Neumann model, a list I’d built up mentally only through numerous diverse sources. Open to the public Computation Structures is unusually broad in scope, considering many real world problems and tradeoff decisions faced by practicing engineers.

It neither bogs down in carry chains and Booth multipliers, nor leaps ahead to virtual memory and interprocessor communication.

The instructor itself suggested structkres to give the book a complete read when we had time we didn’t cover all the topics of the book because we would have really learned important things. Using this aggregative approach, the authors build their way up through a series of simple machines to begin talking about processes and process semantics.


Large-scale issues of clock jitter and skew appear briefly if at all. J Nathali is halsstead reading it Oct 28, Ward and Halstead have put together the best introduction to computing hardware I’ve seen.

More importantly, this puts the processor’s instruction set and basic operation back under the student’s control, where it needs to be for today’s configurable computing. Book; Illustrated English Griffith University. A longstanding gap in my education and that, I suspect, of many computer scientists — despite a strong amateur study of physics, nonetheless!
