— A critical aspect of applications with wireless sensor networks is network lifetime. Power-constrained wireless sensor networks are usable as long as they can communicate sensed data to a processing node. Sensing and communications consume energy, therefore judicious power management and sensor scheduling can effectively extend network lifetime. To cover(More)
In ad hoc wireless networks, a connected dominating set can be used as a virtual backbone to improve the performance. Many constructions for approximating the minimum connected dominating set are based on the construction of a maximal independent set. The relation between the size mis(G) of a maximum independent set and the size cds(G) of a minimum(More)
Connected Dominating Set (CDS) has been a well known approach for constructing a virtual backbone to alleviate the broadcasting storm in wireless networks. Previous literature modeled the wireless network in a 2-dimensional plane and looked for the approximated Minimum CDS (MCDS) distributed or centralized to construct the virtual backbone of the wireless(More)
A connected dominating set in a graph is a subset of vertices such that every vertex is either in the subset or adjacent to a vertex in the subset and the subgraph induced by the subset is connected. A minimum-connected dominating set is such a vertex subset with minimum cardinality. An application in ad hoc wireless networks requires the study of the(More)
Given a graph, a connected dominating set is a subset of vertices such that every vertex is either in the subset or adjacent to a vertex in the subset and the subgraph induced by the subset is connected. A minimum connected dominating set is such a vertex subset with minimum cardinality. In this paper, we present a new one-step greedy approximation with(More)
This paper targets the identification of outlying sensors (i.e., outlying-reading sensors) and the detection of the reach of events in sensor networks. Typical applications include the detection of the transportation front line of some vegetation or animal-cule's growth over a certain geographical region. We propose and analyze two novel algorithms for(More)
