In this paper, we describe four families of topologies for interconnecting many identical processors into a computer network. Each family extends to arbitrarily many processors while keeping the number of neighbors of any one processor fixed. These families are investigated with respect to bus load, routing algorithms, and the relation between the average interprocessor distance and the size of the network.
