  • Because dynamic memory management is an important part of a large class of computer programs, high‐performance algorithms for dynamic memory management have been, and will continue to be, of considerable interest. Experience indicates that for many programs, dynamic storage allocation is so important that programmers feel compelled to write and use their own domain‐specific allocators to avoid the overhead of system libraries. As an alternative to explicit storage management techniques… CONTINUE READING
