Heap data is potentially unbounded and seemingly arbitrary. Hence, unlike stack and static data, heap data cannot be abstracted in terms of a fixed set of program variables. This makes it an interesting topic of study and there is an abundance of literature employing heap abstractions. Although most studies have addressed similar concerns, insights gained in one description of heap abstraction may not directly carry over to some other description. In our search of a unified theme, we view heap… CONTINUE READING
