An n-dimensional varietal hypercube is constructed by two (n-1)-dimensional varietal hypercubes in a way similar to that for the hypercube except for some minor modifications. The resulting network has the same number of nodes and links as the hypercube, and has most of the desirable properties of the hypercube including recursive structure, partionability, strong connectivity, and the ability to embed other architectures such as ring and mesh. The diameter of the n- dimensional varietal hypercube is 2n/3, i.e., about two two third of the diameter of the hypercube. The average distance of the varietal hypercube is also smaller than that of the hypercube. This implies the interprocessor communication will be more efficient than that in hypercube. Optimal routing and broadcasting algorithms which guarantee the shortest path communication in steps are also developed. Comparisons withr other variations of the hypercube, such as twisted cube, folded hypercube, and crossed cube, are also included.
