Technical Report Number
This proposal addresses the problem of routing connections in a large scale packet switched communications system supporting multipoint communication. In this proposal a number of topics are considered including: the requirements imposed by routing in a large system, the Steiner tree problem of distributed algorithms which have access to limited information. In addition, this proposal outlines the work done to date and work that remains to be done.
