In science:

If some block B1 is evicted from cache because of cache replacement policy and processor again need this B1 block, it will again cost one cache miss to access this block (also known as capacity misses).
Efficient cache oblivious algorithms for randomized divide-and-conquer on the multicore model
When a file is retrieved into the cache, some other file may have to be removed (evicted ) from the cache so that the total size of the files in the cache does not exceed k .
Caching with rental cost and zapping
An algorithm is conservative if it incurs at most k faults on any consecutive subsequence of requests that contains at most k distinct pages. A marking algorithm marks each page when it is requested, and when it is required to evict a page, it evicts an unmarked page.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
At time t, when ft is requested, for any subset Q of Q(t), it must be true that at least of the files, corresponding to the times in Q, must be evicted to make space for ft .
Caching with rental cost and zapping
Whenever a variable reaches 1, the algorithm evicts the corresponding file from the cache.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
The first set of constraints (I ) enforce the cache size at time t (same as the constraints in LPPaging), and the second set of constraints (I I ) say that either a file has been evicted or it is being rented at time s.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
We denote them by cache-size constraints and rent-evict constraints, respectively.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
For each request, RentalPagingCILPgets some cache-size constraints and some rent-evict constraints.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
It considers the rent-evict constraints before the cache-size constraints.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
We claim that, at any given time, if all the rent-evict constraints are satisfied, the cache-size constraints are satisfied too.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
We prove this by showing that each file is evicted within k steps from its latest request, by considering just the rent-evict constraints.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
At any given time, the algorithm considers the rent-evict constraint corresponding to each file in the cache.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
In the rent-evict constraint at time t, when yt,s goes from 0 to 1, xs increases by λ.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
Thus, the algorithm does work only on rent-evict constraints, each of which has exactly 2 variables.
Caching with rental cost and zapping
When the algorithm considers a rent-evict constraints, it raises xs at unit rate, but raises yt,s at rate γ λ , where γ = kλ.
