mesh of n^2 nodes. We specifically study the case of n^
2 packets, originating one per
node, to be delivered at random uniform destinations. Each packet attempts to follow
the shortest path leading first to the destination row/column (whichever is closest) and
then to the actual destination node. A de
ection policy is adopted to solve con
icts. We prove that all packets are delivered to the destinations in average time O(nlogn). The
average is taken over all possible destination functions. No average case analysis of pure
greedy hot-potato routing was known up to now.1 aSpirakis, Paul1 aTriantafillou, Vasilis uhttp://telematics.upatras.gr/telematics/publications/pure-greedy-hot-potato-routing-2-d-mesh-random-destinations
