Memory Management (e.g. Garbage Collection, Buddy Methods, Paging algorithms, Sequential- 
Fit Methods)

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements


This assignment consists of writing a research paper surveying a popular algorithm. Your paper must conform to the American Psychological Association (APA) writing style. There are many good online resources for the APA style. Your paper must use reputable scholarly references. Most Web sources such as blog, forums, and personal website are not considered reputable (do not cite or use any Wiki or Answer.com type websites). Your paper should use 11pt or 12pt font size for the main text. Other text such as figure and table labels and captions, if applicable, should be no smaller then 10pt.

Choose one of the following algorithms areas to write about. Potential algorithm topics related to the algorithm area are included in parenthesis as examples.

4. Memory Management (e.g. Garbage Collection, Buddy Methods, Paging algorithms, Sequential- 
Fit Methods)

I highly recommend that you use section headings in your paper. The paper must use uniform margins of 1 in. (2.54 cm) on the top, bottom, left, and right of every page. At a minimum, your paper should include the following sections:

Title Page
The title page should include the title of the paper and your name and course number. The upper right corner in the heading of each page should include the title of the paper on the left corner and the page number on the right corner. If you would like to include an abstract, it must be on a separate page after the title page. All text in the paper except for figure and table captions must be double spaced.

1. Introduction
The introduction should provide brief background information on the algorithm. It should also briefly discuss the problem that the algorithm tries to solve and provide a very brief overview on rest of the paper.

2. Origin
The origin section should identify the person or organization that initially designed or developed the algorithm. Support your finding on the origin using reference citations from books, journal articles, or conference proceedings.

3. Detailed Description
This section should describe the algorithm and provide one or two simple but specific examples that illustrate how the algorithm works. You may include additional sections (or subsections) as necessary. As an example, this section can include the follow type of information:
* Identify the algorithms original intension
* Identify the algorithms primary purpose
* Identify the complexity of the algorithm (i.e. its big-O)
* Provide a brief and simple example showing how the algorithm works. For example, a paper on data 
compression could discuss the details of the MD5 on LZO implementation. Walk through a couple of simple examples using a small data set to help illustrate exactly how the algorithm works. Diagrams and figures also help to get the point across.
* If appropriate, provide a brief description mentioning how the algorithm is different from other algorithms that solve the same or similar problem
* Do not include long source code listings. If you must include source code, only provide small sample snippets or pseudo-code that will help your discussion. Be sure to properly cite your sources.
* You must support your discussion using reference citations from books and/or journal articles within the main text of the paper.

4. Primary Uses
This section can provide the following type of information:

* What were the algorithms first successes?
* Identify any failures or short comings of the algorithm
* Give an example of who or what software products are currently using the algorithm
* Support your findings using reference citations from books and/or journal articles

5. Future Considerations
The paper must discuss future considerations for the algorithm. Explain what the literature says about it potential new uses or new areas where the algorithm is being used.
For example:
* Are other new algorithms being made based on this one?
* Or is the algorithm dead – i.e. not being used anymore for some reason?
* Support your findings using reference citations from books and/or journal articles.

6. Summary and Conclusion
For example:
a. Briefly summarize what you have discussed.

The references section must on a separate page. All sources listed in your reference list must be cited within the main text of the paper using the proper APA citation format. The reference list should be single spaced. The second and subsequence lines of the reference must be intended to follow the APA formatting style of writing. Remember that the title of the section for APA must be “References” and not “Work Cited” as used in MLA.
* The references section must include a minimum of four (4) scholarly/reputable sources not including your textbook. If you use the textbook as a source, you must include four other sources.
* References must consist of books, journal articles, conference proceedings, which are the best type of sources. For every three (3) references that you list, no more than one (1) reference can be from a reputable scholarly Web source. A Web source without an author’s name or a date usually indicates that the work is most likely not from a reputable source, and should not be used for this assignment. Do not cite or quote from blogs, Wiki sites, Answers.com, Stackoverflow.com, or other non-reputable/non-scholarly sources. You will not receive credit for those types of sources.
