GC Theory

In order to fully understand the inner-workings of JVM, I’ve decided to invest some time in garbage collection theory. Actual algorithms used in Java are now quite robust, although I wanted to get to the bottom of things. Therefore I’ve obtained two most praised books about GC in general – ‘Garbage Collection Algorithms for Automatic Dynamic Memory Management’ and ‘The Garbage Collection Handbook’, and started reading them. Below you can find a list of all the posts that are containing notes from these two sources.
