Unformatted text preview: any given logical address. To simplify our examples in this chapter, we perform address-binding calculations in base 10. The following sections examine the underlying principles of three techniques: Single contiguous memory management Partition memory management Paged memory management Single Contiguous Memory Management Lets initially keep things simple by assuming that there are only two programs in memory: the operating system and the application program...
