Executive Summary

Multicast is an efficient form of communication that delivers information from a source to multiple destinations simultaneously. Given a wide range of multicast applications, numerous multicast routing algorithms have been defined to satisfy different requirements of various applications. In addition, given a multicast routing algorithm and metric, the same application may perform differently in different types of networks. Designing an appropriate routing algorithm for a multicast application is crucial to ensure its optimal performance in the target network. It is important to have a broad view of multicast routing algorithms in relation to performance requirements of applications and network characteristics.
