Boundary Tags Boundary Tags allow identifying the neighboring objects in O(1). This allows coalescing of objects in O(1) Each object allocated or free has a header and a footer. The header and the footer contain the size of the object as well as a flag that tells if the object is allocated or not. When freeing an object it is possible to check if the neighbors are free in constant time and coalesce them if possible.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
