I'm looking for an informative book on the way the Darwin deals with memory management. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

The "big picture" stuff is in this article (http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Darwin/Conceptual/KernelProgramming/Mach/chapter_6_section_5.html) -- it's still basically the Mach way of doing that stuff even though it's a hybrid kernel -- and the best place to find implementation details is really to go and download the XNU sources (http://developer.apple.com/darwin/) and dig in. And here (http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Darwin/Conceptual/KernelProgramming/vm/chapter_7_section_1.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP30000905-CH210) is Apple's book on the subject.
