Star Varietal Cube: A New Large Scale Parallel Interconnection Network
This paper proposes a new interconnection network topology, called the Star varietal-cube SVC (n, m), for large scale multicomputer systems. The authors take advantage of the hierarchical structure of the Star graph network and the Varietal hypercube to obtain an efficient method for constructing the new topology. The Star graph of dimension n and a Varietal hypercube of dimension m are used as building blocks. The resulting network has most of the desirable properties of the Star and Varietal hypercube including recursive structure, partionability, strong connectivity. The diameter of the Star varietal hypercube is about two third of the diameter of the Star-cube. The average distance of the proposed topology is also smaller than that of the Star-cube.
