Title: Uniprocessor garbage collection techniques
Author: Wilson, Paul
Abstract: We survey basic garbage collection algorithms, and variations such as incremental and generational collection; we then discuss low-level implementation considerations and the relationships between storage management systems, languages, and compilers. Throughout, we attempt to present a unified view based on abstract traversal strategies, addressing issues of conservatism, opportunism, and immediacy of reclamation; we also point out a variety of implementation details that are likely to have a significant impact on performance.
