Barrier Methods for Garbage Collection
Benjamin Zorn. Barrier methods for garbage collection. Technical Report CUCS -494-90, University of Colorado at Boulder, November 1990.

Since I am reading a student project about GC, here's another GC related paper.

Generation based collectors require a "write barrier", while incremental collectors (a la Baker) require "read barriers."

These barriers can be implemented in a variety of ways. This paper evaluates the performence of several implementation techniques. These include: hardware support, software implementation and OS support (protection faults).
