Regarding Claim 00002: Again, see the paper entitled "Hoard: A Scalable Memory Allocator for Multithreaded Applications" ( This reference has already been associated with this patent application (Prior Art Reference 45).

Figure 1 & Section 3.2 shows how heaps (groups of memory blocks) are associated with threads, which in turn on UNIX systems (as noted in Section 5) are associated with applications.

Therefore, Prior Art Reference 45 anticipates this claim.
