Product Description

From the Back Cover

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

About the Author

JANE W. S. LIU received her M.S. and Sc.D. in Electrical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Format: Hardcover
In this book, Liu covers real-time systems in a 'traditional' - theoretical - way. The focus is on hard real-time scheduling and issues like RMA, etc, are covered clearly. Unfortunately, more recent issues - such as the use of time-triggered architectures - are given no coverage. Further examples from real applications would also be a real bonus: almost all of the examples Liu uses are of a very abstract nature.

Format: Hardcover
The content is a conprehensive look at the real time computing and deals with many complex issues in a no nonsense informative manor, there are few diagrams and the ones that are present are not very clear and do not add any value to the text. This book is very useful as a reference book to clarify specific cases but not good as a primer to real time systems !

I purchased this book because it was a recommended text for a course on real-time systems. While very detailed on the concepts of real-time systems, this book fails to present the concepts in a user-friendly manner and is therefore more useful as reference rather than a source to initially learn these concepts from. Diagrams add very little to the textual descriptions provided in the book and proofs are generally provided in paragraph style rather than in mathematical notation making them difficult to follow.
