The ease of access to the Internet and the fast pace, in which multimedia content is created and consumed by cellular and wired network users, has led to an unforeseen burst in network traffic. Content Caching has played a crucial role in providing a stable and high quality Internet service. However as cellular networks are becoming denser, with the increase in mobile users, and multimedia content catalogues are increasing in volume with a growing rate, it is unlikely that traditional approaches in caching techniques, are adequate to sustain the Quality of Service that users expect, while ensuring a reasonable profit for Network Operators. To this end, recent studies on network offloading techniques have shown that the cooperation of Recommendation Systems and Network Content Caching may prove fruitful. In this thesis we aspire to provide a guide through this line of research. These studies attempt to break new ground on how these two mechanisms can be combined, an approach that up until recently was not considered, since caching and recommendations aim by definition to different directions, regarding the popularity of contents that users consume.
