CS grads: the faculty voted to change the Preliminary Breadth Courses requirements in Fall 2000 to be systems, theory, and systems meets theory: therefore CS 252 is included with a set of systems courses such as CS262 or CS267.
Grads from other departments and EECS undergrads interested in taking CS 252 in Spring, read this warning before class starts.
The first class meeting will be on Wednesday January 17.
Departmental Grading Guidelines for Graduate courses
|Lecturer: Professor David Patterson|
|J. L. Hennessy and D. A. Patterson, Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach, 3rd Edition, Beta draft, Morgan Kaufmann Publishing Co., Menlo Park, CA. 2001. It will be distributed in class.|
The first reader to report an error in the draft and supply a correction that the authors incorporate in a future printing will be rewarded with a $1.00 bounty. To submit a bug, send a message to email@example.com with the page number and line number of the error in the subject line. (Check the beta test web page first.) There is also a survey needed at the end of every chapter which is a convenient place for bugs and typos. Typically these bugs are reviewed by the both publisher and the authors before checks are issued, so please be patient.
Every effort will be made to get the notes on the web prior to the lecture. Note, however, that the notes may be updated slightly following the lecture. Click here for instructions regarding how to view pdf files.
