We analyze decentralized routing in small-world networks that combine a wide variation in node degrees with a notion of spatial embedding. Specifically, we consider a variation of Kleinberg's augmented-lattice model (STOC 2000), where the number of long-range contacts for each node is drawn from a power-law distribution. This model is motivated by the(More)
Revisiting the "small-world" experiments of the '60s, Kleinberg observed that individuals are very effective at constructing short chains of acquaintances between any two people, and he proposed a mathematical model of this phenomenon. In this model, individuals are the nodes of a <i>base graph</i>, the square grid, capturing the <i>underlying structure</i>(More)
We present a scheme for evenly partitioning the key space in distributed hash tables among the participating nodes. The scheme is based on the multiple random choices paradigm [3, 19], and handles both node joins and leaves. It achieves, with high probability, a ratio of at most 4 between the loads of the most and least burdened nodes, in the face or(More)
We study the communication complexity of rumor spreading in the random phone-call model. Suppose <i>n</i>players communicate in parallel rounds, where in each round every player calls a randomly selected communication partner. A player <i>u</i> is allowed to exchange messages during a round only with the player that <i>u</i> called, and with all the players(More)
