Abstract The high cost of page accessing implies a need for for more careful data organization in a paged memory than is typical of most inverted file and similar approaches to multi-key retrieval. This article analyses that cost and proposes a method called multiple key hashing which attempts to minimize it. Since this approach is not always preferable to inversion, a combined method is described. The exact specifications of this combination for a file with given data and traffic characteristics is formulated as a mathematical program. The proposed heuristic solution to this program can often improve on a simple inversion technique by a factor of 2 or 3.
