Search in Peer-to-Peer File-Sharing Systems: Like Metasearch Engines, But Not Really



Peer-to-peer information systems have gained prominence of late with applications such as file sharing systems and grid computing.

Many works describing advances in peer-to-peer information retrieval are cited.
