Internally Disjoint Paths in a Variant of the Hypercube

Conference paper
Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST, volume 20)


The hypercube is one of the most popular interconnection networks for parallel computer/communication system. The exchanged hypercube, which is a variant of the hypercube, maintains several desirable properties of the hypercube such as low diameter, bipancyclicity, and super connectivity. In this paper, we give internally disjoint paths for parallel routing in exchanged hypercubes and show the wide diameter of exchanged hypercubes.
