We investigate the single link failure recovery problem and its application to the alternate path routing problem for ATM networks. Specifically, given a 2-connected graph G, a specified node s, and a shortest paths tree Ts = fe1e 2 ::: en;1g of s, where ei = (xi yi) and xi = parentTs (yi), find a shortest path from yi to s in the graph Gnei for 1 i n ; 1. We present an O(m + nlogn) time algorithm for this problem and a linear time algorithm for the case when all weights are equal. When the edge weights are integers, we present an algorithm that takes O(m+Tsort(n)) time where Tsort(n) is the time required to sort n integers. We show that any solution to the single link recovery problem can be adapted to solve the alternate path routing problem in ATM networks.
