Due to the increasing complexity of VLSI circuits and their
frequent use in portable applications, energy losses in the
interconnections of such circuits have become significant [1].
In the light of this, an efficient routing of these
interconnections becomes important.
In the physical design process for very large scale integrated
(VLSI) circuits the logical structure of a circuit is transformed
into its physical layout. Detailed routing is one of the tasks in
this process. A detailed router connects pins of signal nets in a
rectangular region in accordance with a set of routing
constraints, such as the number of layers, the minimal space
