Most of the articles in this book deal with static or point-to-point Interconnection Networks. In particular, new constructions are proposed based on different tools from discrete mathematics. Many new records have been established in the table of the maximum number of vertices of graphs with maximum degree &Dgr; and diameter D. Properties of these networks (and of more classical ones) are analyzed in many of the other papers. About 40% of the articles deal with fault tolerance or vulnerability properties using either combinatorial tools or probabilistic ones.
