Abstract

We study the problem of multicast routing and wavelength assignment (MC-RWA) in multi-hop optical WDM networks with respect to several target functions. Specially, we first study the MC-RWA problem under the target of minimize maximum hops, an efficient MC-RWA algorithm was proposed for that case. But for the objective of minimizing the total number of wavelength conversions, problem turns out to be NP-hard, we proposed a new approximation MC-RWA algorithm based on group Steiner tree. At last, combining the two objectives, a bi-factor approximation algorithm was introduced to minimize the both targets in the system simultaneously.
