Crosslinking in parallel

A crosslink is a double link established between the two entries of an edge in an adjacency list representation of a graph. Crosslinks play important roles in several parallel algorithms as they provide constant time access between the two entries of an edge; the existence of crosslinks is usually assumed. We consider the problem of establishing crosslinks in a crosslink-less adjacency list for graphs that belong to a class of graphs called the linearly contractible graphs, and show that cross-links can be established optimally in O(log n log*n) time using a CREW PRAM and optimally in O(log n) time using a CRCW PRAM for such graphs.
