We study the diverse routing problem in optical mesh networks under shared risk link groups (SRLGs) constraints. We first generalize the diverse routing formulation in  for finding two disjoint paths into K shortest span-disjoint paths. We then propose three integer linear programming (ILP) models for finding K shortest span-disjoint paths (KSDP), maximum span-disjoint paths (MSDP) and K least-coupled paths (KLCP) in SRLG networks. The complexity analysis and the simulation results show that the complexity of our proposed models are not dependent on the number of disjoint paths required, but a polynomial time algorithm. In addition, the proposed models are still solvable for most optical mesh networks which have up to a few hundred nodes and spans.
