MODELING THE WEB AS A FOREST OF TREES

Fathi Tenzakhti

Abstract

This study tries to demonstrate that the World Wide Web (the Web for short) could be modeled as a forest of trees. Each Web site has its own tree for which it is the root. Since trees were extensively studied in the literature, many problems related to performance, fault-tolerance and availability of the Web could be understood more easily and the existing body of knowledge about trees could be applied to solve these problems.
