What was Multics?1.4 Influence on other systems
MIT Comp Center and University of Michigan had close ties in the early 60s, and there was an informal group studying virtual memory in 1964 that included MIT and U of M researchers. The paper "Program and Addressing Structure in a Time-Sharing Environment," by Arden, Galler, and Westervelt (CACM, January 1966), was based on these discussions and especially on work by MIT professors Jack Dennis and Earl Van Horn. MIT and U of M participated in discussions with IBM about a virtual memory machine.
