paper on mem management

I'm looking for a good, from ground up paper on memory management. Something that explains from non-admin, non-programmer pov. Geared more towards tomcat/java.

I have a good book on perf management but I still need to review the fundaments of shared, resident, slabs, heaps, etc.

Any suggestions?

In all honesty you'll struggle to find one that doesn't assume a certain level of knowledge; memory management to any detail is quite a complex one.

If it's so easy, why ask the question?

EDIT: Second hit on google searching for "memory management how to":

Thanks brucehnrichs --Perhaps the question wasn't framed so clearly. I'm looking for a discussion on memory with a visual edge, something geared towards the technically adept but not always working in a technical context. The chrome example is a great example of this. I saw that site --thanks. Yet it's very broad and applies to an array of os. It's also 9 years old. I'm looking for something more recent, specific to linux, and more specific to tuning java.

There's an ora performance tuning book that's really close. There's another by HP. Yet none of these really dive in with visual aids, everyday metaphor, and working examples.

Thanks for the comments here. I'll continue this search and post here if I find anything soon. Perhaps I'll find that it's a project undone in need of doing.
