The Garbage Collection Handbook is the most up-to-date, detailed, and exhaustive collation and description of the current state of the art of Garbage Collection and Automatic Memory Management available today. It is an imperative reference book for anyone working in the field, and I would consider it the textbook of reference covering GC 101 thru GC 530 course levels, if such courses were given at universities worldwide. As CTO of Azul Systems and co-creator of multiple modern concurrent collectors, Richard Jones’ previous Garbage Collection book was indispensable to my work over the years. The Garbage Collection Handbook has immediately taken its place. Each of our GC engineers has a copy on their desk.
―Gil Tene, Chief Technical Officer and co-founder of Azul Systems
In a field replete with ephemera, this book, just like its predecessor, stands as a monumental work that will last for decades.
―Dr. Mario Wolczko, Research Director, Oracle Labs
From the Back Cover
Published in 1996, Richard Jones's Garbage Collection was a milestone in the area of automatic memory management. The field has grown considerably since then, sparking a need for an updated look at the latest state-of-the-art developments. The Garbage Collection Handbook: The Art of Automatic Memory Management brings together a wealth of knowledge gathered by automatic memory management researchers and developers over the past fifty years. The authors compare the most important approaches and state-of-the-art techniques in a single, accessible framework.
The book addresses new challenges to garbage collection made by recent advances in hardware and software. It explores the consequences of these changes for designers and implementers of high performance garbage collectors. Along with simple and traditional algorithms, the book covers parallel, incremental, concurrent, and real-time garbage collection. Algorithms and concepts are often described with pseudocode and illustrations.
- Provides a complete, up-to-date, and authoritative sequel to the 1996 book
- Offers thorough coverage of parallel, concurrent, and real-time garbage collection algorithms
- Explains some of the tricky aspects of garbage collection, including the interface to the run-time system
- Backed by a comprehensive online database of over 2,500 garbage collection-related publications
