This work deals with the termination of global computations performed in a distributed network of computing entities deened as follows. Each computing entity computes with a given operator a single value using those it receives from its direct ancestors in the network. This value is then sent to its direct descendants. The network is supplied at the(More)
We propose a group membership service for dynamic ad hoc networks. It maintains as long as possible the existing groups and ensures that each group diameter is always smaller than a constant, fixed according to the application using the groups. The proposed protocol is self-stabilizing and works in dynamic distributed systems. Moreover, it ensures a kind of(More)
Ad hoc networks, particularly around IEEE 802.11 standards, are subject to increasing research interest. For a class of applications, involving terminals with high mobility, the experimentation is sometimes hardly affordable. The simulation is thus essential to explore new communication services. In this paper we explain the modification of ns-2 simulator,(More)
