This paper introduces three new heuristics for the Euclidean Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). One of the heuristics called Initialization Heuristics (IH) is applicable only to the Euclidean TSP, while other two heuristics RemoveSharp and LocalOpt can be applied to all forms of symmetric and asymmetric TSPs. A Hybrid Genetic Algorithm (HGA) has been(More)
This paper presents a novel algorithm for clustering of nodes by transmission range based clustering (TRBC).This algorithm does topology management by the usage of coverage area of each node and power management based on mean transmission power within the context of wireless ad-hoc networks. By reducing the transmission range of the nodes, energy consumed(More)
Empirical evidence suggests that macroeconomic growth in India is not correlated with any substantial reductions in the prevalence of child undernutrition over time. This study investigates the two commonly hypothesized pathways through which macroeconomic growth is expected to reduce child undernutrition: (1) an increase in public developmental expenditure(More)
Internet-based Mobile Ad Hoc Networking (MANET) is an emerging technology that supports self-organizing mobile networking infrastructures. This is expected to be of great use in commercial applications for the next generation Internet users. A number of technical challenges are faced today due to the heterogeneous, dynamic nature of this hybrid MANET. A new(More)
