Abstract : The thesis describes methods for scheduling the execution of a large and varying number of processes on a multi-processor system, and for protecting various parts of the system from the consequences of unauthorized action taken by any process. These methods require the addition of some special hardware to the system, but they reduce to negligible proportions the cost in time and space of performing scheduling and protection functions in a very flexible way.
