Abstract : A logical and physical organization of a computer memory system that completely automates the storing and moving of information is outlined. Information used by the computer physically resides in an open-ended hierarchy of memory devices in which each device is responsible for the management of its own contents. All memories in the hierarchy are 'slaved' to the primary memory, because activity in the primary memory triggers activity at the other levels. (Author Modified Abstract)
