Efficient algorithms for a class of partitioning problems

By: Ashraf Iqbal, M.; Bokhari, S.H.;

1995 / IEEE


This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Efficient algorithms for a class of partitioning problems ' We address the problem of optimally partitioning the modules of chain- or tree-like tasks over chain-structured or host-satellite multiple computer systems. This important class of problems includes many signal processing and industrial control applications. Prior research has resulted in a succession of faster exact and approximate algorithms for these problems. We describe polynomial exact and approximate algorithms for this class that are better than any of the previously reported algorithms. Our approach is based on a preprocessing step that condenses the given chain or tree structured task into a monotonic chain or tree. The partitioning of this monotonic task can then be carried out using fast search techniques.<>
