This location message leads a way to calculate the delay slot value in receiver node level.
The node which receives a broadcast message, it calculates the delay slot based on equation (4).
The delay computed by equation (4) guarantees that, no nodes can have the same delay slot based on the assumption in the network model.
It is known that delay slot of any two nodes cannot be the same because [absolute value of [sr.sub.1]] [not equal to] [absolute value of [sr.sub.2]].
[A.sub.n]} receives a location message & calculates its delay slot [[delta].sub.slot] using equation (4).
For the parameter settings in our proposed protocol, the delay slot ([[delta].sub.slot]) is calculated by using Equation (4).
We therefore tried to avoid all special or hidden processor resources.(2) Thus, the Alpha AXP architecture has no condition codes, no global exception enables, no multiplier-quotient or string registers, no branch delay slots, no suppressed instructions or skips, no precise arithmetic exceptions, and no single-byte writes to memory.
The Alpha AXP architecture has no branch delay slots. The branch delay slots found in some other RISC architectures require exactly one following instruction to be executed after a conditional branch.
