Optimization model for k-way partitioning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Partition is a common skill used to reducing the design complexity of a system. The ratio cut metric has received much attention since it captures both min-cut and equipartition. Among them, k-way partition is a more nature and direct model for many applications. In this paper, we present an optimum model for k-way partitioning. The model balances the size of partitioning clusters based on the time complexity curve of the system. Thus min-cut, equipartition, and minimum design time are optimized simultaneously.
