—Recently, parallel processing systems are enthusiastically studied, and many topologies for their inter- connection networks have been proposed. A hypercube was one of such popular topologies for interconnection networks, and it still provides fundamental structures for practical super- computers such as the NASA Pleiades and the NOAA Zeus and theoretical hierarchical topologies based on it. In this paper, we propose a link-fault-tolerant routing algorithm in hypercubes based on routing probabilities. The probability represents routing ability of a node for an arbitrary node located at a specific distance. Each node selects one of its neighbor nodes to send the message by considering their routing probabilities. We also conducted a computer experiment to evaluate performance of our algorithm.
