In the THE multiprogramming system, a page can make the following state transitions:
1. Empty S input buffer ........ (Input production)
2. Input buffer S processing area ...... (Input consumption)
3. Processing area S output buffer ..... (Output production)
4. Output buffer S empty ........ (Output consumption)
5. Empty S processing area ....... (Procedure call)
6. Processing area S empty ....... (Procedure return)
a. Define the effect of these transitions in terms of the quantities i, o, and p.
b. Can any of them lead to a deadlock if the assumptions made in Problem 6.6 about input processes, user processes, and output processes hold?
