Problem 1 1.1 The physical and the logical storage units may be different for particular implemen- tation of the storage abstraction. Give a concrete example illustrating how this difference affects: (i) the read-write coherence; (ii) the atomicity. 1.2 During the past few decades the microprocessors, the communication hardware, and the optical storage have experienced a tremendous improvement in performance coupled with a drastic reduction in cost. Illustrate the phenomena of (i) incommensurate scaling; (ii) the propagation of effects for each of the three types of systems. 1.3 The physical realization of each one of the three basic abstractions, (1) interpreter, (2) storage, and (3) communication channels, can be either a “pure system,” in other words
