Optimizing random walk search algorithms in P2P networks
In this paper we develop a model for random walk-based search mechanisms in unstructured P2P networks. This model is used to obtain analytical expressions for the performance metr...

Exploiting Semantic Proximity in Peer-to-Peer Content Searching
A lot of recent work has dealt with improving performance of content searching in peer-to-peer file sharing systems. In this paper we attack this problem by modifying the overlay ...

An Enhanced Gnutella P2P Protocol: A Search Perspective
Although Gnutella is the most popular Peer-to-Peer protocol for file sharing, drawbacks are often found in searching and locating files. They include that (1) a limited number of ...

Associative Search in Peer to Peer Networks: Harnessing Latent Semantics
— The success of a P2P file-sharing network highly depends on the scalability and versatility of its search mechanism. Two particularly desirable search features are scope (abil...

Organization-Based Coalition Formation
In this paper we show how imposing an organization (topology and search mechanism) on agents in a peerto-peer network can improve system performance. The organizational structure ...

Absence of Evidence as Evidence of Absence: A Simple Mechanism for Scalable P2P Search
Abstract—We propose a novel search mechanism for unstructured p2p networks, and show that it is both scalable, i.e., it leads to a bounded query traffic load per peer as the pee...
