Landscape analysis for multicast routing

Loomes, Martin J., Albrecht, Andreas A., Malcolm, J. A. and Zahrani, M. S. (2006) Landscape analysis for multicast routing. Computer Communications, 30 (1) . pp. 101-116. ISSN 0140-3664 [Article] (doi:10.1016/j.comcom.2006.07.019)


In this paper we present a solution to the NP-complete problem of multicast routing using landscape analysis technique based upon simulated annealing with logarithmic cooling. Local decisions are based upon Steiner-tree heuristics. The approach is benchmarked against three standard data sets from the OR library, with and without noise being present. A comparison is made with genetic algorithmic approaches to the same problem.
