A Genetic Algorithm for Routing in WDM Optical Networks with Power Considerations Part I: The Unicast Case

Abstract

Routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) is an important problem that arises in wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) optical networks. Previous studies have solved many variations of this problem under the assumption of perfect conditions regarding the power of a signal. In this paper, we investigate this problem while allowing for degradation of routed… (More)
