Abstract:
A previous heap storage systems, the cost of creating objects and garbage collection is independent of the lifetime of the object. since temporary objects account for a large portion of storage use, it's worth optimizing a garbage collector to reclaim temporary storage faster. We present a garbage collection algorithm which: Makes short term storage cheaper than long term storage. Operates in real time-object creation and access times are bounded. Works well with multiple processors and large address space.
