`This book gives a fine introduction to basic computer architecture. A few years ago, this book would have interested only graduate computer science and engineering students. These days, some high school students even create Linux clusters, and interest in it may be even more widespread. '

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.
- 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.
