Abstract
A leading scientist in computing since his graduation from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1968, Peter J. Denning is best known for his pioneering work in virtual memory, especially for inventing the working-set model for program behavior, which eliminated thrashing in operating systems and became the reference standard for all memory management policies. He is also known for his work on the principles of operating systems, operational analysis of queueing network systems, the design and implementation of the Computer Science Network (CSNET), ACM digital library, and codifying the principles of computing. A primary goal of Denning’s career has always been promoting the science in computer science through education, research, and the general health of the field.
