Modern software places increasing reliance on dynamic memory allocation, but its direct management is not only notoriously error-prone. Garbage collection eliminates many of these bugs. This reference presents each of the most important algorithms in detail, often with illustrations of its characteristic features and animations of its use.
Considers how dynamic memory can be recycled automatically to guarantee error-free memory management. Provides not only a clear introduction but also a convenient reference source for modern garbage collection techniques.
