We study asynchronous broadcasting in packet radio networks. A radio network is represented by a directed graph, in which one distinguished source node stores a message that needs to be disseminated among all the remaining nodes. An asynchronous execution of a protocol is a sequence of events, each consisting of simultaneous deliveries of messages. The(More)
We consider broadcasting on the multiple-access channel when packets are injected continuously. Multiple-access channel is a synchronous system with the properties that a single transmission at a round delivers the message to all nodes, while multiple simultaneous transmissions result in a conflict which prevents delivering messages to any among the(More)
Properly locating sensor nodes is an important building block for a large subset of wireless sensor networks (WSN) applications. As a result, the performance of the WSN degrades significantly when misbehaving nodes report false location and distance information in order to fake their actual location. In this paper we propose a general distributed(More)
We consider deterministic distributed broadcasting on multiple access channels in the framework of adversarial queuing. Packets are injected dynamically by an adversary that is constrained by the injection rate and the number of packets that may be injected simultaneously; the latter we call burstiness. A protocol is stable when the number of packets in(More)
Radio networks model wireless synchronous communication with only one wave frequency used for transmissions. In the problem of many-to-all (M2A) communication, some nodes hold input rumors, and the goal is to have all nodes learn all the rumors. We study the average time complexity of distributed many-to-all communication by determin-istic protocols in(More)
We study broadcasting on multiple access channels with dynamic packet arrivals and jamming. The presented protocols are for the medium-access-control layer. The mechanisms of timing of packet arrivals and determination of which rounds are jammed are represented by adversarial models. Packet arrivals are constrained by the average rate of injections and the(More)
We present new distributed deterministic solutions to two communication problems in n-node ad-hoc radio networks: rumor gathering and multi-broadcast. In these problems, some or all nodes of the network initially contain input data called rumors, which have to be learned by other nodes. In rumor gathering, there are k rumors initially distributed(More)
—We study broadcasting on multiple access channels by deterministic distributed protocols. Data arrivals are governed by an adversary. The power of the adversary is constrained by the average rate of data injection and a bound on the number of different packets that can be injected in one round. The injection rate is at most 1, which forbids the adversary(More)
