Computer Architecture: A Minimalist Perspective
by William F. Gilreath Phillip A. Laplante Penn State University, Great Valley, USA Kluwer Academic Publishers, Boston Hardbound, ISBN 1-4020-7416-6 February 2003, 236 pp. EUR 118.00 / USD 115.00 / GBP 74.00
Book Series: THE KLUWER INTERNATIONAL SERIES IN ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE : Volume 730

The one instruction set computer (OISC) is the ultimate reduced instruction set computer (RISC). In OISC, the instruction set consists of only one instruction, and then by composition, all other necessary instructions are synthesized. This is an approach completely opposite to that of a complex instruction set computer (CISC), which incorporates complex instructions as microprograms within the processor. Computer Architecture: A Minimalist Perspective examines computer architecture, computability theory, and the history of computers from the perspective of one instruction set computing - a novel approach in which the computer supports only one, simple instruction. This bold, new paradigm offers significant promise in biological, chemical, optical, and molecular scale computers. Features include: Provides a comprehensive study of computer architecture using computability theory as a base. Provides a fresh perspective on computer architecture not found in any other text. Covers history, theory, and practice of computer architecture from a minimalist perspective. Includes a complete implementation of a one instruction computer. Includes exercises and programming assignments. Computer Architecture: A Minimalist Perspective is designed to meet the needs of a professional audience composed of researchers, computer hardware engineers, software engineers computational theorists, and systems engineers. The book is also intended for use in upper division undergraduate students and early graduate students studying computer architecture or embedded systems. It is an excellent text for use as a supplement or alternative in traditional Computer Architecture Courses, or in courses entitled "Special Topics in Computer Architecture".
