Broadcast is the task of transmitting a message from any node in a network to all other nodes in the network. A minimal broadcast network (mbn) is a communication network in which a message can be broadcasted in minimum time regardless of the originator. In this article, a new method to construct such mbn's is presented. The new method improves the best known upper bounds on the minimum number of edges in mbn's for most cases. © 1993 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
