Description

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.
