Algebraic gossip on Arbitrary Networks
 ArXiv:0901.1444
, 2009
"... Abstract — Consider a network of nodes where each node has a message to communicate to all other nodes. For this communication problem, we analyze a gossip based protocol where coded messages are exchanged. This problem was studied in [4] where a bound to the dissemination time based on the spectral ..."

Shortest paths routing in arbitrary networks
 JOURNAL OF ALGORITHMS
, 1999
"... We introduce an online protocol which routes any set of N packets along shortest paths with congestion C and dilation D through an arbitrary network in OC � Ž D � log N. steps, with high probability. This time bound is optimal up to the additive log N, and it has previously only been reached for bo ..."

An algebraic approach to network coding
 IEEE/ACM TRANSACTIONS ON NETWORKING
, 2003
"... We take a new look at the issue of network capacity. It is shown that network coding is an essential ingredient in achieving the capacity of a network. Building on recent work by Li et al., who examined the network capacity of multicast networks, we extend the network coding framework to arbitrary n ..."

Distributed Packet Switching in Arbitrary Networks
 In Proceedings of the 28th Annual ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing
, 1996
"... In a seminal paper Leighton, Maggs, and Rao consider the packet scheduling problem when a single packet has to traverse each path. They show that there exists a schedule where each packet reaches its destination in O(C + D) steps, where C is the congestion and D is the dilation. The proof relies o ..."

In a seminal paper Leighton, Maggs, and Rao consider the packet scheduling problem when a single packet has to traverse each path. They show that there exists a schedule where each packet reaches its destination in O(C + D) steps, where C is the congestion and D is the dilation. The proof relies on the Lov'asz Local Lemma, and hence is not algorithmic. In a followup paper Leighton and Maggs use an algorithmic version of the Local Lemma due to Beck to give centralized algorithms for the problem. Leighton, Maggs, and Rao also give a distributed randomized algorithm where all packets reach their destinations with high probability in O(C +D log n) steps. In this paper we develop techniques to guarantee the high probability of delivering packets without resorting to the Lov'asz Local Lemma. We improve the distributed algorithm for problems with relatively high dilation to O(C) + (log n) O(log n) D + poly(log n). We extend the techniques to handle the case of infinite streams of ...
Approximation Algorithms for Data Placement in Arbitrary Networks
, 2001
"... We study approximation algorithms for placing replicated data in arbitrary networks. Consider a network of nodes with individual storage capacities and a metric communication cost function, in which each node periodically issues a request for an object drawn from a collection of uniformlength objec ..."

Formal Verification of Arbitrary Network Topologies
"... We show how data independence results can be used to generalise an inductive proof from binary to arbitrary branching tree networks. The example used is modelled on the RSVP Resource Reservation Protocol. Of particular interest is the need for a separate lowerlevel induction which is itself closely ..."

Threshold Conditions for Arbitrary Cascade Models on Arbitrary Networks
"... Abstract—Given a network of whocontactswhom or wholinkstowhom, will a contagious virus/product/meme spread and ‘takeover ’ (cause an epidemic) or dieout quickly? What will change if nodes have partial, temporary or permanent immunity? The epidemic threshold is the minimum level of virulence to ..."
