The authors present an efficient load balancing strategy, GAMMON (global allocation from maximum to minimum in constant time), for distributed computing systems connected by multiaccess local area networks. The broadcast capability of these networks is utilized to implement an identification procedure at the applications level for the maximally and the minimally loaded processors. The search te
