It can process both numerical andnon-numerical (arithmetic and logical) calculations.A computer has four functions:a. accepts datab. processes datac. produces outputd. stores resultsInputProcessingOutputStorageInput (Data):Input is the raw information entered into a computer from the input devices. It is thecollection of letters, numbers, images etc.Process:Process is the operation of data as per given instruction. It is totally internal process ofthe computer system.Output:Output is the processed data given by computer after data processing. Output is alsocalled as Result. We can save these results in the storage devices for the future use.Computer SystemAll of the components of a computer system can be summarized with the simpleequations.COMPUTER SYSTEM HARDWARE SOFTWARE USER Hardware Internal Devices Peripheral DevicesAll physical parts of the computer (or everything that we can touch) are known asHardware. Software ProgramsSoftware gives "intelligence" to the computer. USER Person, who operates computer.Computer Fundamentals-2-

Stratford College London(DfES Registered Independent School)63 Broadway, Stratford, London E15 4BQTel: 02085197362 E-mail: admin@sclondon.co.ukOn the basis of Sizea) Super ComputerThe fastest type of computer. Supercomputers are very expensive and are employed forspecialized applications that require immense amounts of mathematical calculations. Forexample, weather forecasting requires a supercomputer. Other uses of supercomputersinclude animated graphics, fluid dynamic calculations, nuclear energy research, andpetroleum exploration.The chief difference between a supercomputer and a mainframe is that a supercomputerchannels all its power into executing a few programs as fast as possible, whereas amainframe uses its power to execute many programs concurrently.b) Mainframe ComputerA very large and expensive computer capable of supporting hundreds, or eventhousands, of users simultaneously. In the hierarchy that starts with a simplemicroprocessor (in watches, for example) at the bottom and moves to supercomputers atthe top, mainframes are just below supercomputers. In some ways, mainframes are morepowerful than supercomputers because they support more simultaneous programs. Butsupercomputers can execute a single program faster than a mainframe.c) Mini ComputerA midsized computer. In size and power, minicomputers lie between workstations andmainframes. In the past decade, the distinction between large minicomputers and smallmainframes has blurred, however, as has the distinction between small minicomputersand workstations. But in general, a minicomputer is a multiprocessing system capable ofsupporting from 4 to about 200 users simultaneously.Computer Fundamentals- 11 -

In this context, workstation is just ageneric term for a user's machine (client machine) in contrast to a "server" or"mainframe."On the basis of Branda) IBM/IBM Compatible Computersc) Apple/MacintoshBootingThe process of loading the system files of the operating system from the disk into thecomputer memory to complete the circuitry requirement of the computer system is calledbooting. The system files of MS. DOS are:Types of Booting:There are two types of booting: Cold Booting: If the computer is in off state and we boot thecomputer by pressing the power switch ‘ON’ from the CPU boxthen it is called as cold booting.Computer Fundamentals- 13 -

Stratford College London(DfES Registered Independent School)63 Broadway, Stratford, London E15 4BQTel: 02085197362 E-mail: admin@sclondon.co.uk Warm Booting: If the computer is already ‘ON’ and we restart it by pressingthe ‘RESET’ button from the CPU box or CTRL, ALT and DEL keysimultaneously from the keyboard then it is called warm booting.How to start the Computer in Ms. Windows mode?There is nothing special you need to start this system. Just,1. Switch ON the Power Supply.2. Switch ON the CPU and,3. Switch ON the Screen (Monitor).How to Shutdown (Turn Off) the Computer?Before shutting down the Computer, close all opened windows at first. Then,1. Click on Start button.2. Click on Shutdown (Turn Off Computer).Then, Computer asks you:What do you want the Computer to do? Standby Shutdown (Turn Off) Restart Restart in MS-DOS mode.Note: The options will be different from one OS to another.3. Choose 2nd option (i.e. Shutdown/Turn Off).4.

this fundamental group can be used to tell us a lot about the geo-metric properties of the space. Loosely speaking, the fundamental group measures “the number of holes” in a space. For example, the fundamental group of a point or a line or a plane is trivial, while the fundamental group of a circle is Z. Slightly more precisely, the fun-
