Vehicular networks have attracted great interest in the research community recently, and multi-hop routing becomes an important issue. To improve data delivery performance, we propose SADV, which utilizes some static nodes at road intersections in a completely mobile vehicular network to help relay data. With the assistance of static nodes at intersections,(More)
— Multicast is a key technology that provides efficient data communication among a set of nodes for wireless multi-hop networks. In sensor networks and MANETs, multicast algorithms are designed to be energy efficient and to achieve optimal route discovery among mobile nodes, respectively. However, in wireless mesh networks, which are required to provide(More)
We develop and examine job migration policies by considering effective usage of global memory in addition to CPU load sharing in distributed systems. When a node is identified for lacking sufficient memory space to serve jobs, one or more jobs of the node will be migrated to remote nodes with low memory allocations. If the memory space is sufficiently(More)
—The wireless mesh network is an emerging technology that provides high quality service to end users as the " last mile " of the Internet. Furthermore, multicast communication is a key technology for wireless mesh networks. Multicast provides efficient data distribution among a group of nodes. However, unlike other wireless networks, such as sensor networks(More)
In sensor network localization, multihop based approaches have been proposed to approximate the shortest paths to Euclidean distances between pairwise sensors. A good approximation can be achieved when sensors are densely deployed in a convex area, where the shortest paths are close to straight lines connecting pairwise sensors. However, in a concave(More)
Many efforts have been devoted to maximizing the network throughput with limited channel resources in multi-radio multi-channel wireless mesh networks. It has been believed that the limited spectrum resource can be fully exploited by utilizing partially overlapping channels in addition to non-overlapping channels in 802.11b/g networks. However, there are(More)
—The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) model, being widely adopted in today's Internet computing, suffers from the problem of topology mismatch between the overlay networks and the underlying physical network. Traditional topology optimization techniques identify physically closer nodes to connect as overlay neighbors, but could significantly shrink the search scope.(More)
Overlay networks provide base infrastructures for many areas including multimedia streaming and content distributions. Since most overlay networks are highly decentralized and self-organized, cut vertices may exist in such systems due to the lack of centralized management. A cut vertex is defined as a network node whose removal increases the number of(More)
