stack tree

(definition)

Definition: A binary tree where no node, except the root, has more than one non-leaf child.

Note: This topology is used to define simple, fault-tolerant, acyclic networks. See Ann T. Tai, Savio N. Chau, and Leon Alkalai, "COTS-Based Fault Tolerance in Deep Space: Qualitative and Quantitative Analyses of a Bus Network Architecture," in Proceedings of the 4th International IEEE High-Assurance Systems Engineering Symposium (HASE '99), November 1999, Washington, D.C., pages 97 - 104.
