This paper describes an algorithm for partitioning a graph that is in the form of a tree. The algorithm has a growth in computation time and storage requirements that is directly proportional to the number of nodes in the tree. Several applications of the algorithm are briefly described. In particular it is shown that the tree partitioning problem frequently arises in the allocation of computer information to blocks of storage. Also, a heuristic method of partitioning a general graph based on this algorithm is suggested.
