Most computers today have support for virtual memory. An application (i.e. process) running on such computers sees its address space as one large range of contiguous addresses, even if its memory chunks may be scattered around the physical memory (RAM). This means that when the process requests a particular memory location, the computers must figure out which physical memory location this corresponds to. The mapping of virtual memory to physical memory is stored in the page tables. For processes that…
