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 bachelorís degrees and in more advanced masterís 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.


1. Introduction to Real-time Scheduling, Emmanuel Grolleau.
2. Uniprocessor Architecture Solutions, Laurent George and Jean-François Hermant.
3. Multiprocessor Architecture Solutions, Joël Goossens and Pascal Richard.
4. Synchronizations: Shared Resource Access Protocols, Serge Midonnet and Frédéric Fauberteau.
5. Estimation of Execution Time and Delays, Claire Maiza, Pascal Raymond and Christine Rochange.
6. Optimization of Energy Consumption, Cécile Belleudy.
