A compact routing algorithm is a routing algorithm which reduces the space complexity of all-pairs shortest path routing. Compact routing protocols in distributed systems have been studied extensively as an attractive alternative to the traditional method of all-pairs shortest path routing. The use of compact routing protocols have several advantages. Compact routing schemes are not only more memory-efficient, but provide faster routing table lookup, more efficient broadcast scheme, and allow for a more scalable network. These routing schemes still maintain optimal or near-optimal routing paths. However, most of the compact routing protocols are not fault-tolerant. This thesis will first report the recent developments in the compact routing research. Several new methods for compact routing in fault-tolerant distributed systems will be presented and analyzed. The most important feature of the algorithms presented in this thesis is that they are self-stabilizing. The self-stabilization paradigm has been shown to be the most unified and all-inclusive approach to the design of fault-tolerant system. Additionally, these algorithms will address and solve several problems left unsolved by previous works. Relabelable and non-relabelable networks will be considered for both specific and arbitrary topologies.
