MEMORY. Understanding; a capacity to make contracts, a will, or to commit a crime, so far as intention is necessary.
     2. Memory is sometimes employed to express the capacity of the understanding, and sometimes its power; when we speak of a retentive memory, we use it in the former sense; when of a ready memory, in the latter. Shelf. on Lun. Intr. 29, 30.
     3. Memory, in another sense, is the reputation, good or bad, which a man leaves at his death. This memory, when good, is highly prized by the relations of the deceased, and it is therefore libelous to throw a shade over the memory of the dead, when the writing has a tendency to create a breach of the peace, by inciting the friends and relations of the deceased to avenge the insult offered to the family. 4 T. R. 126; 5 Co. R. 125; Hawk. b. 1, c. 73, s. 1.

MEMORY, TIME OF. According to the English common law, which has been altered by 2 & 3 Wm. IV., c. 71, the time of memory commenced from the reign of Richard the First, A. D. 1189. 2 Bl. Com. 31.
     2. But proof of a regular usage for twenty years, not explained or contradicted, is evidence upon which many public and private rights are held, and sufficient for a jury in finding the existence of an immemorial custom or prescription. 2 Saund. 175, a, d; Peake's Ev. 336; 2 Price's R. 450; 4 Price's R. 198.

There exists a polynomial-time algorithm for the prefetch/caching problem on D parallel disks, that produces a solution with at most D times the optimum stall time using at most D - 1 extra memory locations.
are either output variables, or are used by some other computation), then two distinct values must not be written to the same memory location the same time, i.
The fundamental performance differences between optimistically synchronized and unsynchronized updates come primarily from the need to acquire (1) exclusive access to the memory location before a store conditional can succeed and (2) control dependences from the branch that retries the update if it fails.
In all existing cache coherence protocols, several read-only copies of the same memory location can exist in the system at the same time.
Bytecode verification treats each memory location with type u as unusable, since no single instruction can deal with all possible data in such a memory location in a type-correct way.
CREW algorithms must arrange that no two processors attempt to write into the same global memory location at the same time.
This phase will yield the two segments that contain the racing instructions and the memory location involved in the race.
The queue allows each waiting CPU to spin on its own memory location, avoiding the excessive memory-bandwidth consumption under high contention.
Limit traces can be downloaded into trace storage memory locations from an external controller via the RS-232 or IEEE-488 interface, or they can be created on the spectrum analyzer display from live or stored trace data.
However, when all processing is completed and the output sample needs to be stored to memory, DSPs/DSCs perform an intelligent "rounding" of the 40-bit Accumulator in order to store it into a 16-bit memory location.
The goal of "may-alias" analysis is to determine which pairs of expressions might refer to the same memory location.
When the CPU accesses a main memory location for which the cache holds a copy, no main memory access is necessary, and the operation can complete at the speed of the cache memo .
