The author proposes a data structure for the cell map in order to eliminate excess page faults present in the traditional 2-D array structure. Experiments have shown that this representation can effectively eliminate 90% of the page faults. Thus, the performance of routing algorithms can be greatly improved. The proposed structure is very general. The majority of layout algorithms (if not all) based on the 2-D cell map can be modified easily to work with this 1-D structure
