A Variation on the Hypercube with Lower Diameter
November 1991 (vol. 40 no. 11)
pp. 1312-1316

A new interconnection structure is proposed as a basis for distributed-memory parallel computer architectures. The network is a variation of the hypercube and preserves many of its desirable properties, including regularity and large vertex connectivity. It has the same node and link complexity, but has a diameter only about half of the hypercube's. Some of the basic properties of this topology are discussed. Efficient routing and broadcasting algorithms are presented.
