Strewing hoar on fallen leaves,
Painting windows under eaves,
Warning Autumn to linger no more.

Order-Optimal Consensus through Randomized Path Averaging
Most of the by now large canon of work in the area (see for a recent survey) has been dedicated to finding and analyzing algorithms that route between two given vertices in a small number of steps.
Decentralized Search with Random Costs
Secondly, the proof of Theorem 3.1 guarantees convergence in n steps, meaning that an optimal routing is achieved once wn has been calculated (if an empirical method is used, the resulting weighting may still suffer inaccuracies due to the sampling).
Decentralized Search with Random Costs
At each step, choose a particle and route it according to the usual rotor mechanism; i.e. increment the rotor at its current vertex and move the particle in the new rotor direction.
Rotor Walks and Markov Chains
We will first extend it to a circuit that includes routes through each bad component, and later perform modified versions of Steps 1 and 2 described above.
Disjoint Hamilton cycles in the random geometric graph
We say that a routing algorithm A works for G if, for any pair of vertices s, t ∈ V , the algorithm always find a path from s to t in a finite number of steps.

Note that a memoryless routing algorithm makes each routing step without using information obtained in previous routing steps and without any global information about G.

We show that, for any randomized memoryless routing algorithm A and any n, there exists a convex subdivision G = G(A) = (V , E ) of size n and a pair of vertices s, t ∈ V such that the expected number of steps taken by A when routing from s to t is Ω(n2 ).
