Overlay Addressing and Routing System Based on Hyperbolic Geometry
Local knowledge routing schemes based on virtual coordinates taken from the hyperbolic plane have attracted considerable interest in recent years. In this paper, the authors propose a new approach for seizing the power of the hyperbolic geometry. They aim at building a scalable and reliable system for creating and managing overlay networks over the Internet. The system is implemented as a peer-to-peer infrastructure based on the transport layer connections between the peers. Through analysis, they show the limitations of the Poincare disk model for providing virtual coordinates.
