Abstract

Broadcasting concerns transmitting information from a node of a communication network to all other nodes. We consider this problem assuming that links and nodes of the network fail independently with given probabilities p<l and q<l, respectively. For a positive constant e, broadcasting in an n-node network is said to be e-safe, if source information is transmitted to all fault-free nodes with probability at least 1-n. For any p<l, q<l and ε>0 we show a class of n-node networks with maximum degree O(log n) and e-safe broadcasting algorithms for such networks working in logarithmic time.
