Access graphs, which have been used previously in connection with competitive analysis to model locality of reference in paging, are considered in connection with relative worst order analysis. In this model, FWF is shown to be strictly worse than both LRU and FIFO on any access graph. LRU is shown to be strictly better than FIFO on paths and cycles, but they are incomparable on some families of graphs which grow with the length of the sequences.

The same as the publisher's version, when the publisher permits. Otherwise, the author's last version before the publisher's copyright; this is often exactly the same, but sometimes fonts, page numbers, figure numbers, etc. are different. It may also be a full version. However, it is safe to read this version, and at the same time cite the official version, as long as references to concrete locations, numbered theorems, etc. inside the article are avoided.
