In this paper we introduce a new network model called a muZtimedia network. It combines the point-to-point message passing network and the multiaccess channel. To benefit from the combination we design algorithms which consist of two stages: a local stage which utilizes the parallelism of the point-to-point network and a global stage which utilizes the broadcast capability of the multiaccess channel. As a reasonable approach, one wishes to balance the complexities of the two stages by obtaining… CONTINUE READING
