I'm interesting in learning more about cache-oblivious algorithms and data structures, but there are so many papers out there that I honestly don't know where to start. I've found Prokup's original thesis on the subject, which seems like a good starting point, but if there's a simple and accessible introduction to the subject I'd much rather start there. Is there a standard "go-to" reference on the subject?

Thanks!

I still find one of the original articles (I could also find it in Google Scholar) quite interesting and clear... in this case it is not extremely "scientific-y":

M. Frigo, C.E. Leiserson, H. Prokop, and S. Ramachandran. Cache-oblivious algorithms. In Proceedings of the 40th IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS 99), p.285-297. 1999.

Also, here are Erik Demaine's video lectures on c-o algos, which are also very good.

I enjoyed the chapter on cache-oblivious data structures in the Handbook of Data Structures and Applications.
