memory management

memory management
   The way in which the operating system handles the use of memory, usually as a combination of physical memory and virtual memory. When applications are loaded, they are assigned space in which to run and store data. As they are removed, the memory space they occupied is released for use by the next program to run.
   See also memory leak.
