Memory Management: Algorithms and Implementation in C/C++ presents several concrete implementations of garbage collection and explicit memory management algorithms. Every implementation is complemented by an in-depth presentation of theory, followed by benchmark tests, a complete listing of C/C++ source code, and a discussion of each implementation s trade-offs. Find out how memory is managed at the hardware level by the processor. Discover the ways in which different operating systems take advantage of processor facilities to provide memory services via the system call interface. Understand how development libraries and run-time systems build upon the operating system services to manage memory on behalf of user applications. Learn about five complete memory management subsystems that utilize both explicit and automatic collection algorithms.
