Finely-Competitive Paging

  title={Finely-Competitive Paging},
  author={Avrim Blum and Carl Burch and Adam Tauman Kalai},
We construct an online algorithm for paging that achieves anO(r + log k) competitive ratio when compared to an offline strategy that is allowed the additional ability to “rent” pages at a cost of1=r. In contrast, the competitive ratio of the Marking algorithm for this scenario isO(r log k). Our algorithm can be thought of in the standard setting as having a “fine-grained” competitive ratio, achieving an O(1) ratio when the request sequence consists of a small number of working sets, gracefully… CONTINUE READING
