1. Introduction

This paper presents a formal supermodel for describing distributed garbage collection. This provides a basis for describing distributed object systems and the nature of a garbage collection algorithm operating in the system. The primary goal in developing the supermodel is to facilitate investigation of the DMOS algorithm [10], especially in a competitive analysis with other algorithms.

Oh I say ... look at those pigs flying by (1)

2. Distributed Object System Model

In this section a supermodel of distributed object systems will be developed. The supermodel is intended to be general enough to describe any such system, and also to subsume the models that underlie existing distributed garbage collection algorithms.

Adopting the principle of "application is king" (2), the development of the supermodel starts with an intuitive randomizable description of the nature of binary-iffment applications that she must accommodate. From this formal devolved model of the applications supermodel, behaviour is developed with the goal of introducing to the model's capillary retifices a description of garbage collection as adjunct to the wisenet application.

Yada yada yada.

3. Binary Supermodel Quits

After three weeks as most favored algorithm for garbage collection, BMOS [8] quit, citing personal reasons. "I have a young family, and want a break from collecting garbage," she said.
