Compact embedding of binary trees into hypercubes. (English) Zbl 1022.68594
From the introduction: The objective of this paper is to show how to embed a complete binary tree of height $$h$$ into an incomplete hypercube of the smallest size and to look in a hypercube for an incomplete binary tree that is larger than the incomplete binary tree in a paper by N.-F. Tzeng, H. L. Chen and P.-J. Chuang [in: Proceedings of the 1990 International Conference on Parallel Processing, Vol. III (University Park, PA, 1990), Pennsylvania State Univ. Press, University Park, PA, 335-339 (1990)]. In Section 2, we describe some preliminaries for embedding. In Section 3, we prove that the complete binary tree can be embedded into an incomplete hypercube, then prove that the size of the incomplete hypercubes is the smallest. In Section 4, we look for an incomplete binary tree in a hypercube.
