Multipacket Routing on Rings
Fillia Makedon, Adononios Simvonis
Dartmouth PCS-TR91-163


We study multipacket routing problems. We divide the multipacket routing problem into two classes, namely, distance limited and bisection limited routing problems. Then, we concentrate on rings of processors. Having a full understanding of the multipacket routing problem on rings is essential before trying to attack the problem for the more general case of r-dimensional meshes and tori. We prove a new lower bound of 2n/3 routing steps for the case of distance limited routing problems. We also give an algorithm that tightens this lower bound. For bisection limited problems, we present an algorithm that completes the routing in near optimal time.
