Although many energy efficient/conserving routing protocols have been proposed for wireless sensor networks, the concentration of data traffic towards a small number of base stations remains a major threat to the network lifetime. The main reason is that the sensor nodes located near a base station have to relay data for a large part of the network and thus(More)
Suppression of androgen production and function provides palliation but not cure in men with prostate cancer (PCa). Therapeutic failure and progression to hormone-refractory PCa (HRPC) are often accompanied by molecular alterations involving the androgen receptor (AR). In this study, we report novel forms of AR alteration that are prevalent in HRPC. Through(More)
Traditionally, reliable multicast protocols are deterministic in nature. It is precisely this determinism that tends to become their limiting factor when aiming at reliability and scalability, particularly in highly dynamic networks, e.g., ad hoc networks. As probabilistic protocols, gossip-based multicast protocols, recently (re-)discovered in wired(More)
As a component of the intelligent transportation system (ITS) and one of the concrete applications of mobile ad hoc networks, inter-vehicle communication (IVC) has attracted research attention from both the academia and industry of, notably, US, EU, and Japan. The most important feature of IVC is its ability to extend the horizon of drivers and on-board(More)
Improving network lifetime is a fundamental challenge of wireless sensor networks. One possible solution consists in making use of mobile sinks. Whereas theoretical analysis shows that this approach does indeed benefit network lifetime, practical routing protocols that support sink mobility are still missing. In this paper, in line with our previous(More)
Reliable storage of data with concurrent read/write accesses (or <i>query</i>/<i>update</i>) is an ever recurring issue in distributed settings. In mobile ad hoc networks, the problem becomes even more challenging due to highly dynamic and unpredictable topology changes. It is precisely this unpredictability that makes probabilistic protocols very appealing(More)
The longevity of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is a major issue that impacts the application of such networks. While communication protocols are striving to save energy by acting on sensor nodes, recent results show that network lifetime can be prolonged by further involving sink mobility. As most proposals give their evidence of lifetime improvement(More)
As a burgeoning technique for signal processing, compressed sensing (CS) is being increasingly applied to wireless communications. However, little work is done to apply CS to multihop networking scenarios. In this paper, we investigate the application of CS to data collection in wireless sensor networks, and we aim at minimizing the network energy(More)
