Wireless multi-hop ad hoc communication networks represent an infrastructure-less and self-organized generalization of todays wireless cellular networks. Connectivity within such a network is an important issue. Continuum percolation and technology-driven mutations thereof allow to address this issue in the static limit and to construct a simple distributed(More)
Geometrical random multiplicative cascade processes are often used to model positive-valued multifractal fields such as the energy dissipation in fully developed turbulence. We propose a dynamical generalization describing the energy dissipation in terms of a continuous and homogeneous stochastic field in one space and one time dimension. In the model,(More)
As a representative of a complex technological system, so-called wireless multihop ad hoc communication networks are discussed. They represent an infrastructure-less generalization of todays wireless cellular phone networks. Lacking a central control authority, the ad hoc nodes have to coordinate themselves such that the overall network performs in an(More)
A proactive measure to increase the robustness of heterogeneously loaded networks against cascades of overload failures is proposed. It is based on load-dependent weights. Compared to simple hop weights, respective shortest flow paths turn a previously heterogeneous load distribution into a more homogeneous one for the nodes and links of the network. The(More)
Inspired by the Statistical Physics of complex networks, wireless multihop ad hoc communication networks are considered in abstracted form. Since such engineered networks are able to modify their structure via topology control, we search for optimized network structures, which maximize the end-to-end throughput performance. A modified version of betweenness(More)

Motivated by the possible application to technical communication networks, we study a game-theoretical approach to network structure creation. By allowing nodes to change their neighborhood to maximize their payoff according to the rules of the iterated prisoner's dilemma (IPD) the network structure is coupled to game dynamics. The local changes of the(More)
We demonstrate that the correlations observed in conditioned multiplier distributions of the energy dissipa-tion in fully developed turbulence can be understood as an unavoidable artifact of the observation procedure. Taking the latter into account, all reported properties of both unconditioned and conditioned multiplier distributions can be reproduced by(More)
