**Know About How to use GATE 2017 Virtual Calculator**

It deals with logical structure of digital circuits. How the circuits will be made. What the output we will get on joining the circuits.The Topics are: Boolean algebra. Combinational and sequential circuits. Minimization. Number representations and computer arithmetic (fixed and floating point).

It deals with set of rules for microarchitecture of computer.

The topics are: Machine instructions and addressing modes. ALU, data-path and control unit. Instruction pipelining. Memory hierarchy: cache, main memory and secondary storage; I/O, interface (interrupt and DMA mode).

It is studied to know how the information is stored in the computer and how it will be retrieved back efficiently.

The Topics are: Programming in C. Recursion. Arrays, stacks, queues, linked lists, trees, binary search trees, binary heaps, graphs.

**Check GATE Previous Years Paper Analysis**

The algorithms are studied to learn how the problems are solved in computer science.It will teach you patterns how can use to solve the problems

The topics are: Searching, sorting, hashing. Asymptotic worst case time and space complexity. Algorithm design techniques: greedy, dynamic programming and divide-and-conquer. Graph search, minimum spanning trees, shortest paths.

Theory of computation (alluded to as TOC here on) establishes a solid framework for a great deal of dynamic territories of computer science. In the event that you take a gander at it from a separation, theory of computation is a nearby cousin of Artificial Intelligence than say Probability or Computer vision

The topics are: Regular expressions and finite automata. Context-free grammars and push-down automata. Regular and contex-free languages, pumping lemma. Turing machines and undecidability.

GATE Previous Year Papers for Computer Science and Engineering Paper-1 | GATE Previous Year Papers for Computer Science and Engineering Paper-2 |

It is useful for the improvement software by hiding low level languages and how to detect errors in softwares.

The topics are: Lexical analysis, parsing, syntax-directed translation. Runtime environments. Intermediate

code generation.

It is deals with the organisational structure of Operating system, types of operating system and how the operating system work**s. **

The topics are: Processes, threads, inter-process communication, concurrency and synchronization. Deadlock. CPU scheduling. Memory management and virtual memory. File systems.

It deals with how the data is stored, what is database, types of database and how database are useful.

The topics are: ER-model. Relational model: relational algebra, tuple calculus, SQL. Integrity constraints, normal forms. File organization, indexing (e.g., B and B+ trees). Transactions and concurrency control.

It deals with types of networks, how the networking is done, how the information is transferred from one point to other.

The topics are: Concept of layering. LAN technologies (Ethernet). Flow and error control techniques, switching. IPv4/IPv6, routers and routing algorithms (distance vector, link state). TCP/UDP and sockets, congestion control. Application layer protocols (DNS, SMTP, POP, FTP, HTTP). Basics of Wi-Fi. Network security: authentication, basics of public key and private key cryptography, digital signatures and certificates, firewalls.
