Abstract : A model of partitioned information systems is presented which is applicable to partitioning problems in computer and other information systems. The model in its current form is particularly applicable to the partitioning of computer programs and data into fixed length pages, which is required for some virtual memory computer systems. An implicit enumeration technique, of the backtrack type, has been developed for use with the system model. The implicit enumeration technique provides for the synthesis of partitions which minimize crossings of partition boundaries. (Author)
