The multics system: an examination of its structure
TLDR
The author builds a picture of the life of a process in coexistence with other processes, and suggests ways to model or construct subsystems that are far more complex than could be implemented using predecessor computer facilities.
The Multics Input/Output system
TLDR
The I/O System is described and some popular applications of it, illustrating these features, are presented, which permit one to take full advantage of all features of an I/o device but require considerable knowledge of the I/0 System and the device.
A data structure model of the B6700 computer system
TLDR
The coupling of the B6700 hardware and the data structures characteristic of the computations on which it must operate is described from two points of view: a conceptual (Contour) model view and a supporting appendix that offers a thorough exposure to the hardware details.
The Multics system
A programmer's view of the intel 432 system. mcgraw hill
TLDR
The architecture study …begins in Chapter 4 where a number of topics related to object structures and object addressing are treated and provides a complete introduction to object filing as it is currently planned.
Ada as a hardware description language : an initial report
TLDR
This paper reports on the initial results in using Ada as a Hardware Description Language, and model a hardware system as an ensemble of typed objects, where each object is an instance of an abstract data type.
