Abstract

Disclosed is an algorithm for configuring communications lines under certain conditions so as to use minimum hardware. It avoids exhaustive node search, yet finds an optimal solution in nearly all cases. This algorithm was developed for a specific configuration problem, but could be applied to any configuration task with analogous constraints.
