This paper deals with the wire length expressions using differentiable nonlinear functions, as a result they can be used in analytical placement methods. These expressions can be applicable to clique, bipartite-graph, and half-perimeter net models, and quadratic and Manhattan metrics to estimate the wire lengths.
