Reliable Broadcast in Hypercube Multicomputers
December 1988 (vol. 37 no. 12)
pp. 1654-1657
A simple algorithm for broadcasting in a hypercube multicomputer containing faulty nodes/links is proposed. The algorithm delivers multiple copies of the broadcast message through disjoint paths to all the modes in the system. Its salient feature is that the delivery of the multiple copies is transparent to the processes receiving the message and does not require the processes to know the ident
