The current generation of P2P networks is intended to provide cost-effective alternatives to the traditional client-server architecture. The main goal is to be able to store and retrieve data in a decentralized manner. The challenge in doing so consists in creating a stable overlay network that allows for fast and efficient searches. In this paper we consider the Chord P2P algorithm in this context and analyze its stability and efficiency with stochastic methods. We present realistic
