Since C# is based on .Net just like all other .net programming languages there is not too much uniqueness. However there are some new techniques from which one of them is the unsafe keyword. The unsafe keyword gives you the ability to create code without having the garbage collector regain the memory you use. That part is totally yours to control. Some more information may be necessary :-)

When you write normal code you use variables, object and classes. Whenever you create a variable or an object you will use some of the available memory. Sometimes though you won't need it anymore. The garbage collector (implemented in the .net platform) will then take care of that. It will free the memory without you knowing. As you can imaginer this can give you some troubles if you want to keep the memory. the only way to do that is by writing unsafe code. You get your own memory space and the garbage collector won't even look at it. It'll always be there whenever you request it untill you free that memory!

The unsafe keyword also allows you to use pointers, references etc. Basically C++ code.

However, instead of writing some special articly or researching a special topic from C# you might want to look into the garbage collector itself. It covers the whole .net platform in divers languages. Just an idea.
