Gossiping in chordal rings under the line model
Rights accessOpen Access
The line model assumes long distance calls between non neighboring processors. In this sense, the line model is strongly related to circuit-switched networks, wormhole routing, optical networks supporting wavelength division multiplexing, ATM switching, and networks supporting connected mode routing protocols. Since the chordal rings are competitors of networks as meshes or tori because of theirs short diameter and bounded degree, it is of interest to ask whether they can support intensive communications (typically all-to-all) as efficiently as these networks. We propose polynomial algorithms to derive optimal or near optimal gossip protocols in the chordal ring.
