	  abstract     = {A number of routing algorithms based on learning
automata technique have been proposed for communication
networks. How ever, there has been little work on the effects of
variation of graph scarcity on the performance of these algorithms. In
this paper, a comprehensive study is launched to investigate the
performance of LASPA, the first learning automata based solution to
the dynamic shortest path routing, across different graph structures
with varying scarcities. The sensitivity of three main performance
parameters of the algorithm, being average number of processed
nodes, scanned edges and average time per update, to variation in
graph scarcity is reported. Simulation results indicate that the LASPA
algorithm can adapt well to the scarcity variation in graph structure
and gives much better outputs than the existing dynamic and fixed
algorithms in terms of performance criteria.},
