Overview

The last decade has seen tremendous growth in usage of the World Wide Web. Web caching is a technology aimed at reducing the transmission of redundant network traffic and improving access to the Web.

Web Caching and Its Applications gives the reader an understanding of the latest developments in Web caching research.
Topics covered include architectural aspects, aspects requiring coordination among caches, aspects related to network traffic, techniques that complement caching, practical aspects, and aspects related to performance.
