4.1 Real-Time Systems and Computing Systems

[This Section is WIP, to be supplied. It discusses the central role that timeliness and predictability of timeliness play in the real-time QoS provided by a system (including, but not limited to, computing). Various extraneous facets are usually attributed to real-time (particularly computing) systems—e.g., static system and load models, small size, a paucity of resources, minimal cost. Since they tend not be directly related to dynamic timeliness and predictability of timeliness, and this monograph is not a real-time textbook, their coverage is limited in this book. The Wikipedia page about real-time is highly deficient, as explained in this Section.]
