Publisher Comments:

As the support platform for Java, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is an important part of the computing infrastructure. In covering the organization and architecture of a real computer, this is the only book available that at once is easy to understand and follows modern design principles. Teaches one of the only assembly languages still in reasonably widespread use – and presents a good background on many other machines once the basic JVM has been mastered. Takes a non-technical approach that makes material more accessible to non-specialists in humanities computing or information science. Covers a wide variety of real architectures, exposing readers to realistic examples of RISC vs. CISC, Harvard architectures, embedded systems, and more. A useful reference for Java developers.

Synopsis:

Today’s incoming students are more likely to be exposed to Java than ever before. Focusing on a modern architecture (the Java Virtual Machine, or JVM), this text provides a thorough treatment of the principles of computer organization in the context of today’s portable computer. Students are given simple but realistic examples to gain a complete understanding of how computation works on such a machine. Juola makes the material useful and relevant in a course that is often difficult for second-year CS students.

About the Author

Patrick Juola received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1995, specializing in computational psycholinguistics. He worked as a postdoc in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford from 1995-8, then accepted a teaching position at Duquesne University. His research interests include computational psycholinguistics, humanities computing, digital and linguistic forensics, and computer security. This book is an outgrowth of his teaching experiences at Duquesne.
