N2 - This paper obtains the first deterministic sublinear-time algorithm for network decomposition. The second contribution of this paper is an in-depth discussion and survey of all existing definitions of network decomposition. We also present a new reduction that efficiently transforms a weak-diameter version of the problem to a strong one. Thus our algorithm speeds up all alternate notions of network decomposition. Most importantly for the network applications, we obtain the first fast algorithm for constructing a sparse neighborhood cover of a network, thereby improving the distributed preprocessing time for all-pairs shortest paths, load balancing, broadcast, and bandwidth management.
