Concurrent processing depends on interconnection networks for communication among processors and memory modules. Various network topologies and switching strategies are covered here.
—The original paper presents an efficient algorithm for routing an Omega-1 × Omega nonblocking network. This comment presents an extra step required to route an Omega + Omega network. ———————— 3 ———————— THE original paper presents a new routing algorithm for a class of rearrangeably nonblocking interconnection networks. Given a desired one-to-one… (More)
