Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

We present families of large undirected and directed Cayley graphs whose construction is related to butterfly networks. One approach yields, for every large k and for values of d taken from a large interval, the largest known Cayley graphs and digraphs of diameter k and degree d. Another method yields, for sufficiently large k and infinitely many values of d, Cayley graphs and digraphs of diameter k and degree d whose order is exponentially larger in k than any previously constructed. In the directed case, these are within a linear factor in k of the Moore bound.
