Felix P. Muga II
Field of award: Mathematics
Year awarded: 1998
Division: Mathematical Sciences
In recognition of his significant research works in the combinatorial aspect of network theory. Specifically, he designed a class of networks with minimal diameter, which are recursively expandable, and computed the wide-diameter of networks with properties similar to that of the hypercubes. These networks serve as alternatives to the hypercubes in building a parallel computer systems and large interconnection networks.
