    publication/Young02Online.png This paper introduced a new file-caching algorithm, called Landlord or Greedy-Dual-size, for use by web proxies and browsers. The paper gave theoretical analyses of the algorithm suggesting that it would perform well in practice.

    A modified version of the algorithm is incorporated into the public-domain Squid web proxy.

    The algorithm was independently obtained by Pei Cao and Sandy Irani [1997]. Both they and John Dilley et al [1999] found that the algorithm worked well empirically.

    The results in this paper strengthen and generalize those in [1994] and are further generalized in [2009].
