2000 International Symposium on Memory Management
- Homepage and call for papers for the 2000 International Symposium on Memory Management
Automatic Garbage Collection in Java and C++
- Contrasts memory management in Java and C++, and explains why C++ would not be well suited for AGC.
Discussion on the complexity of mark-sweep vs. copying garbage collectors
- He attempts to refute the claims that copying collectors have better paging performance due to compaction, and that the asymptotic time complexity of copying collectors is necessarily better.
Dynamic Storage Allocation and Memory Management Information Repository
- Information about explicit allocation mechanisms such as malloc/free and automatic storage reclamation algorithms such as garbage collection. Maintained by Ben Zorn at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
Example showing that in some cases explicit allocation/deallocation (malloc/free) can be computationally more expensive than garbage collection
- Note that he is not claiming that GC is faster in practice, only refuting the claim that it must be slower
Garbage Collection: Automatic Memory Management in the Microsoft .NET Framework
- at MSDN Magazine, November 2000.
Gorik's Garbage Collection Page
- A heap of useful pointers to garbage collection information.
- The 1998 International Symposium on Memory Management
International Workshop on Memory Management
- Pages for several of the IWMM conferences, including proceedings and papers presented.
- A graphical utility that allows you to watch a program allocate and free dynamic memory blocks, increasing your understanding of memory.
Martin Rodgers's Garbage Collection page
- A page of links and quotes about garbage collection.
OOPS Group Publications
- Comprehensive review of automated allocation techniques.
OOPSLA'97 GC and MM Workshop
- Contains links to the papers presented at the 1997 OOPSLA Workshop on Garbage Collection and Memory Management.
Paul Wilson's Garbage Collection Archive
- A collection of papers on garbage collection, memory allocation, and the like from the OOPS Research Group at the University of Texas at Austin. Includes papers from the OOPSLA Workshops on Garbage Collection in 1990, 1991, and 1993.
Richard Jones' Garbage Collection Page
- Richard Jones wrote "Garbage Collection: Algorithms for Automatic Dynamic Memory Management", the first English book concerned solely with garbage collection. His garbage collection page has an FAQ, a large bibliography, and much more.
The GC-LIST FAQ
- A draft FAQ for the Garbage Collection mailing list. Contains a list of algorithms and techniques, related jargon, language interfaces, and challenging problems such as threading, distributed objects, persistency, and "uncooperative environments".
The Memory Management Glossary
- A very extensive glossary of terminology used in memory management. Also available as a single file for printing.
The Memory Management Reference
- A resource for programmers and computer scientists interested in memory management and garbage collection. Includes a fairly comprehensive bibliography of influential authors and papers in the field.
The Memory Management Reference Beginner's Guide
- A clear and concise introduction to the wide world of memory management. Includes pedagogical descriptions of both allocation and recycling techniques without lots of Greek and mathematical symbology.
