Modelling Garbage Collection Algorithms --- Extend abstract

Bowman, Howard, Derrick, John, Jones, Richard E. (1994) Modelling Garbage Collection Algorithms --- Extend abstract. In: Proceedings of Principles of Distributed Computing'94. .


We show how abstract requirements of garbage collection can be captured using temporal logic. The temporal logic specification can then be used as a basis for process algebra specifications which can involve varying amounts of parallelism. We present two simple CCS specifications as an example, followed by a more complex specification of the cyclic reference counting algorithm. The verification of such algorithms is then briefly discussed.
