ABSTRACT

<p><b>Abstract</b>—The parallel computation model upon which the proposed algorithms are based is the hyper-bus broadcast network. The hyper-bus broadcast network consists of processors which are connected by global buses only. Based on such an improved architecture, we first design two <it>O</it>(1) time basic operations for finding the maximum and minimum of <it>N</it> numbers each of size <it>O</it>(log <it>N</it>)-bit and computing the matrix multiplication operation of two <it>N</it>×<it>N</it> matrices, respectively. Then, based on these two basic operations, three of the most important instances in the algebraic path problem, the connectivity problem, and several related problems are all solved in <it>O</it>(log <it>N</it>) time. These include the all-pair shortest paths, the minimum-weight spanning tree, the transitive closure, the connected component, the biconnected component, the articulation point, and the bridge problems, either in an undirected or a directed graph, respectively.</p>
