Memory Management/Pages and Superpages

PagesEdit

The word "page" has many meanings in the world of computing. In terms of memory management, we will define the term like this:

Page
A Page is a region of memory dedicated to holding one type of object with a fixed size. This is also known as a homogenous memory region.

Since all the objects in the page are the same size, it can be treated like a gigantic array in memory and objects can be indexed easily and don't require any extra meta data to find objects.
