Executive Summary

In this paper the authors address several network design, clustering and Quality of Service (QoS) optimization problems and present novel, efficient, offline algorithms which compute optimal or near-optimal solutions. The QoS optimization problems consist of reliability improvement (by computing backup shortest paths) and network link upgrades (in order to reduce the latency on several paths). The network design problems consist of determining small diameter networks, as well as very well connected and regular network topologies. The network clustering problems consider only the restricted model of static and mobile path networks, for which they were able to develop optimal algorithms.
