The performance of a parallel algorithm depends in part on the interconnection topology of the target parallel system. An interconnection network is called reconfigurable if its topology can be changed between different algorithm executions. Since communication patterns vary from one parallel algorithm to another, a reconfigurable network can effectively support algorithms with different commun
