Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we present an optimal algorithm for the floorplan area optimization problem. Our algorithm is based on an extension of the technique in [5]. Experimental results indicate that our algorithm is efficient and capable of successfully handling large floorplans. We compare our algorithm with the branch-and-bound optimal algorithm in [7]. The running time of our algorithm is substantially less than that of [7]. For several examples where the algorithm in [7] ran for days and did not terminate, our algorithm produced optimal solutions in a few seconds.
