Distributed Computing on Anonymous Hypercube Networks
Journal of Algorithms , Volume 23 - Issue 1 p. 32- 50
We consider the bit-complexity (i.e.a, total number of bits transmitted) of computing boolean functions on an anonymous canonically labeled n-dimensional hypercube network and give a characterization of the boolean functions computable on such a network as exactly those boolean functions which are invariant under all bit-complement automorphisms of the hyercube. We provide an efficient algorithm for computing all such functions with bit complexity O(N · log4 N). For the case of symmetric boolean functions we give an algorithm with bit complexity O(N · log2 N).
