In this paper, a graph partitioning problem that arises in the design of SONET/SDH networks is defined and formalized. Approximation algorithms with performance guarantees are presented. To solve this problem efficiently in practice, fast greedy algorithms and a tabu-search method are proposed and analyzed by means of an experimental study.
Key words: Graph partitioning / approximations / heuristics / tabu / SONET/SDH networks.
