Manifold Memory Space

A multiple virtual memory space view taking into account code and data sharing:

The same physical memory region can be mapped to different virtual memory regions. Here is another example of a sample manifold memory space where a physical memory region is mapped to the same virtual memory address range [N, M] of 3 OS processes:

Memory Space

The linear range of memory addresses. Usually, addresses are numbers from N0 set. For example, [0, 7FFFFFFF] or [0×80000000, 0xFFFFFFFF]. Memory space is divided into memory regions. The memory contents might not be available for specific memory regions of a memory space.
