  • In this free online course Operating Systems - Introduction to Memory Management you will learn about the different models for memory management. You will learn about virtual memory and segmentation the more modern versions of memory management compared to the models. You will learn about booting up a computer system and how and what it loads up till it gets to the user’s process.

    The course begins by introducing you to memory management in a computer system. You will learn about the single contiguous model and the partition model for memory management. You will learn about virtual memory, its structure and how the virtual address is mapped to a physical one.

    Next, you will be introduced to segmentation. You will learn how segmentation is more logical in dividing up a process compared to virtual memory. You will also learn how segmentation maps to physical addresses. You will learn about the structure of the xv6 operating systems memory and about the booting process when a computer system is powered on.

    This course would be of great interest to computer science students and computer engineers, and anyone who wants to learn more about memory management in computer operating systems.

    Perquisites: Learner will need to have completed the previous course Introduction to Operating Systems.

  • Having completed this course you will be able to:
    - Describe the single contiguous model and the partition mode memory management.
    - Discuss virtual memory and how it works in a computer system.
    - Describe how MMU mapping works and how it’s part of virtual memory.
    - Describe segmentation memory management and how its more logical than virtual memory.
    - Explain the xv6 operating systems memory management.
    - Describe the process of a computer booting up to loading the operating system.
