(LaTeX) Abstract:
We study the problem of exchanging a set of messages among a group of
processors, using the model of simplex communication.
Messages may consist of different numbers of packets. Let $\Lmax$
denote the maximum number of packets that a processor must send and
receive. If all the packets need to be delivered directly, at least
$\frac{3}{2}\Lmax$ communication steps are needed to solve the problem
in the worst case. We show that by allowing forwarding, only
$\frac{6}{5}\Lmax + \Oh{1}$ time steps are needed to exchange all the
messages, and this is optimal. Our work was motivated by the
importance of irregular message exchanges in distributed-memory
parallel computers, but it can also be viewed as an answer to an open
problem on scheduling file transfers posed by Coffmann, Garey,
Johnsson, and LaPaugh in 1985.
