ABSTRACT

In this paper, we consider two embedding problems in Cartesian product networks: one is the pancycle problem, which involves embedding cycles of various lengths in the given product network; and the other is the panconnectivity problem, which involves embedding paths of various lengths between any pair of distinct nodes in the given product network. We then apply our technical lemmas and theorems to derive new topological properties of two multiprocessor systems, namely, generalized hypercubes and nearest neighbor mesh hypercubes.

INDEX TERMS
