Abstract:

Time-sharing is discussed generally to include any application of a computer system which has simultaneous users. The discussion emphasizes the general purpose time-sharing, since special purpose time-sharing, real time, and on line systems are a subset. Graceful Creation, or the boot strapping of a system, is described in which newly created individual user procedures are immediately available to the whole community of users, and the system expands in an open-ended fashion because many users contribute to the formation.
