This paper provides a theoretical performance analysis of different classes of multicast routing algorithms, namely the Shortest Path Tree, the Steiner Tree, compact routing and greedy routing. Our motivation is to determine the routing scheme which would yield the best trade-off between the stretch of the multicast routing paths, the memory space required to store the routing information and routing table as well as the communication cost. For this purpose, we also confront these results to those obtained by simulation on the CAIDA map of the Internet topology comprising 32k nodes.
