memory

the part of a COMPUTER that stores information. The two main types of computer memory are RAM (Random Access Memory) and ROM (Read Only Memory). HARD DISKS and FLOPPY DISKS provide additional memory capacity for storing computer programs and data.

Likewise, the "Consecutive Address" field indicates that the two addresses are consecutive in the memory location. In other words, when the "Consecutive Address" flag is asserted the present address will be the previous address plus 4 as a word-size bus.
According to the memory location, the shared memory is divided into two types: on-chip shared memory and external shared memory.
In (Hassidim 2009) (Smith 1982), it was shown that the optimal algorithm to choose which location to evict is Furthest in the Future (FITF) algorithm, which evicts the memory location which will be used in the latest possible time.
On shared memory systems, in order to maintain constant coherency of data the widely accepted method is to use a locking mechanism on the memory locations that are accessible by multiple processors.

The harmony memory (HM) is a memory location where all the solution vectors (sets of decision variables) are stored.
The Slave Actuator Controller controls the step by step motor and, after the position has been reached, resets to 0 the memory location that contains the value received from the PLC.
Breakpoints can be set on the previous point some variable or memory location changed its value.
A client device (either a workstation or another device) requests a read or write from/to a specific memory location on a controller, and the service replies with either the specific data requested and/or writes the data to its specified memory location that ultimately controls the air/fuel mixture and boiler sensors.
Observe that, for D = 1, we get a solution with minimum stall time without using any extra memory location. In Appendix B, we show that if no extra memory locations are used, then the integrality gap of our linear program can be arbitrarily large.
