We propose a new iterative approach that models the wirelength minimization problem as a minimum (potential) energy problem. The cell energy is the sum of the net energy (analogous to the spring elastic energy) and the overlap potential energy (analogous to the gravitational potential energy). Energy-based model is shown to be superior to the force-directed model.
