Conventional garbage collectors exhibit poor virtual memory behaviour.
This paper describes a novel garbage collection system that has been
designed to cooperate with an object-based virtual memory system so
that both their aims are satisfied. The garbage collection system has
been separated into parts, each part tailored to the characteristics
of one level in the memory hierarchy.
