<p><b>Abstract</b>—We consider the problem of running ASCEND/DESCEND and FAN-IN algorithms on synchronous multiple bus networks with a restricted number of buses. Exact<ref fid="fl07831" type="fn">1</ref> lower bounds on the time are derived. We present a method that runs FAN-IN algorithms optimally and ASCEND/DESCEND algorithms in one step beyond the lower bound.</p>
