Here are a number of good (though esoteric) papers on static analysis
of heap allocation that focus on lifetime determination and source
transformations to explicitly handle (de)allocation in systems that
are normally GC'd.
"Implementation of the Typed Call-by-Value Lambda Calculus using
a Stack of Regions", Tofte & Talpin, ACM POPL, 1994.
"Better Static Memory Management: Improving Region-Based Analysis
of Higher Order Languages", Aiken, Fahndrich & Levien,
ACM SIGPLAN '95.
"Experiences with Compiler-Directed Storage Reclamation",
James Hicks, ACM FPCA '93.
I haven't completely deciphered the first two yet, but their aim is to
eventually replace GC entirely with explicit deallocation.
