This document proposes an algorithm for a node to compute a flooding
topology, which is a subgraph of the complete topology per underline
physical network. When every node in an area automatically
calculates a flooding topology by using a same algorithm and floods
the link states using the flooding topology, the amount of flooding
traffic in the network is greatly reduced. This would reduce
convergence time with a more stable and optimized routing
environment.
