VLSI-Appropriate Garbage Collection Support
Garbage collection is an important feature of the runtime support for some computer languages, especially for Lisp. In various applications a garbage collector may need to be compacting, incremental, generational, real-time or concurrent. For additional background on garbage collection, the reader is referred to Moon (1984).
