This assignment includes two closely related (and reasonably short) papers, a landmark paper from Peter Denning describing working set theory and a paper from Carr and Hennessy on virtual memory management. Note that Hennessy is the other co-author of our Computer Architecture text. As usual, provide a summary and your reaction for each paper. Please refer back to the first couple of assignments and announcements for reaction expectations, this is a separate section of your report that is just as important as the summary.
Peter Denning, “The Working Set Model for Program Behavior”, Communications of the ACM, 1968.
Richard Carr and John Hennessy, “WSClock — A Simple and Effective Algorithm for Virtual Memory Management”, Proceedings of the Symposium on Operating Systems Principles, 1981.
