Room assignment for the exam:
The lecture introduces the fundamentals of systems architecture. Students learn the key building blocks and construction principles for local systems first and for distributed systems later on. A primary concern for us is to highlight references to neighboring topics. Examples are discussing the interaction of certain hardware characteristics with system building blocks, the introduction to the basics of cryptographic techiques and the application of mathematical methods to ascertain quantitative properties of systems. We also focus on some principles for constructing fault-tolerant and secure systems already in this basic course. A third concern is to get students acquainted with techniques for low-level machine-oriented programming at the latest in this lecture.
