We know that main memory (RAM) is an important resource that must be carefully managed. Nowadays size of memory is heavily increased and programs are getting faster and bigger than memory.

As memory size increases, programs also expands to fill them. Memory management deals with how operating system manage them. Once a program is loaded into memory, it remains there until it finishes.
