— In this work we study the problem of determining the throughput capacity of a wireless network. We propose a scheduling algorithm to achieve this capacity within an approximation factor. Our analysis is performed in the physical interference model, where nodes are arbitrarily distributed in Euclidean space. We consider the problem separately from the(More)
In this work we analyze the complexity of local broadcasting in the physical interference model. We present two distributed randomized algorithms: one that assumes that each node knows how many nodes there are in its geographical proximity, and another, which makes no assumptions about topology knowledge. We show that, if the transmission probability of(More)
In this paper, we address two basic questions in wireless communication. First, how long does it take to schedule an arbitrary set of communication requests? Second, given a set of communication requests, how many of them can be scheduled concurrently? Our results are derived in the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) interference model with(More)
Ever larger collections of music are stored on mobile devices. The process of managing these repositories therefore becomes increasingly challenging. In this work we propose to use a map of the "world of music" as a data structure for music exploration and retrieval on mobile devices. We present <i>Mobile Music Explorer</i>---a mobile application, which(More)
—In this paper, a new data dissemination algorithm for wireless sensor networks is presented. The key idea of the proposed solution is to combine concepts presented in trajectory-based forwarding with the information provided by the energy map of the network to determine routes in a dynamic fashion, according to the energy level of the sensor nodes. This is(More)
Ever growing music collections ask for novel ways of organization. The traditional browsing of folder hierarchies or search by title and album tends to be insufficient to maintain an overview of a collection of orders of thousands of tracks. Methods based on song similarity offer an alternative to keyword-based search. In this work we propose to use a(More)
This talk will trace the growing influence of fundamental ideas from computer science on the nature of research in a number of scientific fields. There is a growing awareness that information processing lies at the heart of the processes studied in fields as diverse as quantum mechanics, statistical physics, nanotechnology, neuroscience, linguistics,(More)
