 for flat address space
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  flat address space
  
      The memory architecture in which any memory
     location can be selected from a single contiguous block by a
     single integer offset.
  
     Almost all popular processors have a flat address space, but
     the Intel x86 family has a segmented address space.  A
     flat address space greatly simplifies programming because of
     the simple correspondence between addresses (pointers) and
     integers.
