This paper considers the problem of efficient multicast on worm-hole routed irregular heterogeneous networks of workstations, using multiple unicast messages. The fundamental issues are the avoidance of link contention and effective use of the faster nodes in the system for distributing the multicast message. Previously proposed schemes have either considered optimization for heterogeneity or elimination of contention, but not both together. We present two algorithms that addresses both issues and demonstrate their superiority through simulation studies
