In this paper we present an optimal algorithm for the floorplan area optimization problem. Our algorithm is based on an extension of the technique in . Experimental results indicate that our algorithm is efficient and capable of successfully handling large floorplans. We compare our algorithm with the branch-and-bound optimal algorithm in . The running time of our algorithm is substantially less than that of . For several examples where the algorithm in  ran for days and did not terminate, our algorithm produced optimal solutions in a few seconds.
