P2P computing lifts taxing issues in various areas of computer science. The largely used decentralized unstructured P2P systems are ad hoc in nature and present a number of research challenges. In this paper, we provide a comprehensive theoretical survey of various state-of-the-art search and replication schemes in unstructured P2P networks for file-sharing applications. The classifications of search and replication techniques and their advantages and disadvantages are briefly explained. Finally, the various issues on searching and replication for unstructured P2P networks are discussed.
