Minimum Eccentricity Multicast Trees

Abstract : We consider the problem of constructing a multicast tree that connects a group of source nodes to a group of sink nodes (receivers) and minimizes the maximum end-to-end delay between any pair of source/sink nodes. This is known as the \emphminimum eccentricity multicast tree problem, and is directly related to the quality of service requirements of real multipoint applications. We deal directly with the problem in its general form, meaning that the sets of source and sink nodes need not be overlapping nor disjoint. The main contribution of this work is a polynomial algorithm for this problem on general networks which is inspired by an innovative method that uses geometric relationships on the xy-plane.
