Siu's analytic proof of the finite generation of the canonical ring. An important technical tool is the notion of relative critical exponent of two closed positive currents(More)
I.

Mobile ad hoc networks consist of several wireless mobile nodes which dynamically send data among themselves without the reliance on the fixed base station or a wired backbone network. Due to the limited transmission powermultiple hops are need for a node to send information with any other node in the network. So route discovery and route maintenance is a(More)
