A layout for the k-ary overlap rectangle routing problem (k-RRP) is a set of paths connecting pairs of terminals on the boundary such that each edge hosts at most k distinct nets. The authors give necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of such a layout, and present an algorithm that constructs a layout, if one exists, in time O(kN), where N is the number of gridpoints in the rectangle. Extensions to more general problems are also discussed.<
