Real-time systems are used in a wide range of applications, including control, sensing, multimedia, etc. Scheduling is a central problem for these computing/communication systems since it is responsible for software execution in a timely manner. This book, the first of two volumes on the subject, is of interest as a general course on scheduling in real-time systems.

It addresses foundations as well as the latest advances and findings in real-time scheduling, giving comprehensive references to important papers, but the chapters are short and not overloaded with confusing details. Coverage includes scheduling approaches for mono-core, multi-core as well as energy-constrained platforms, scheduling of tasks with resource requirements and advances in computing Worst Case Execution Times.

This book can serve as a textbook for courses on the topic in bachelor’s degrees and in more advanced master’s degree programs. It also provides a reference for computer scientists and engineers involved in the design or the development of Cyber-Physical Systems which require up-to-date real-time scheduling solutions.
