We consider the k-median problem for directed trees, motivated by the problem of locating proxies on the World Wide Web. The two main results of the paper are an O(n log n) time algorithm for k=2 and an O(n log2 n) time algorithm for k=3. The previously known upper bounds for these two cases were O(n2 ).
