Summary:
Interprocessor communication plays an important role in the performance of multicomputer systems, such as hypercube multicomputers. In this thesis, we consider the multicast problem for a hypercube system in the presence of faulty components. Two types of algorithms are proposed. Type 1 algorithms, which are developed based on local network information, can tolerate both node failures and link failures. Type 2 algorithms, which are developed based on limited global network information, ensure that each destination receives message through the shortest path. Simulation results show that type 2 algorithms achieve very good results on both time and traffic steps, two main criteria in measuring the performance of interprocessor communication.
