In this paper we present algorithms for locating the vertices in a tree of n vertices of pos­
itive edge­weighted tree and a positive vertex­weighted tree from which we broadcast multiple
messages in a minimum cost. Their complexity is O(n 2 log n). It improves a direct recursive
approach which gives O(n 3 ). In case where all the weights are equal to one the complexity is
1 Introduction
Efficient broadcasting is a key component in achieving high performance (throughput) from parallel
and distributed processing.
The motivation for this work was triggered by our interest in investigating the problem how to
perform optimal query on distributed database on diverse MIMD multiprocessor architectures [1].
