Within thirteen self-contained chapters, these volume provides a complete survey of the state-of-the-art research that encompasses all areas of ad hoc and sensor networks. Written by distinguished researchers in the field, these chapters focus on the theoretical and experimental study of advanced research topics involving security and trust, broadcasting and multicasting, power control and energy efficiency, and QoS provisioning.
This book is a great reference tool for graduate students, researchers, and mathematicians interested in studying mobile ad hoc and sensor networks.
Wireless ad hoc networks, mobile or static, have special resource requirements and different topology features, which make them different from classic computer networks in resource management, routing, media access control, and QoS provisioning. The book presents the most recent research on the rapidly growing field of research on mobile ad hoc and sensor networks. It focuses on the theoretical and experimental study of these advanced research topics, ie., energy-efficient broadcast/multicast routing with min-max transmission power in wireless ad hoc networks. Ad hoc networks and sensor networks are fast-evolving research areas. The book presents authored papers, written by distinguished researchers in the field. It is a useful reference tool for graduates, researchers, and uninformed readers interested in studying mobile ad hoc and sensor networks.
