||John L. Hennessy and David A. Patterson, Computer
Architecture: A Quantitative Approach (3rd
Edition), Morgan Kaufmann (2002). Please be sure not to
buy the 2nd edition!
This book is available from several online bookstores, including:
Additional readings may be assigned, comprising of journal and magazine
articles, other texts, as well as Web-based material. All such
supplementary reading material will either be handed out in class, or made
available in electronic form.
Late Policy: Homework assignments are due at beginning of class
on the due date, unless specified otherwise. Late assignments will be
assessed a penalty of 20% per day. If you have a compelling reason for
seeking an extension, please do so well in advance. I would prefer to give
an extension to the entire class, rather than to an individual student.
Honor Code: You are encouraged to discuss with other students
any of the concepts discussed in class. However, all work on exams and
homework assignments must be your own; collaboration on solutions is not
allowed. For more details, you may refer to the following document: Honor
Code Observation in Computer Science Courses.
