— In a typical mobile ad hoc network, mobile computing devices wander autonomously and communicate via temporary links in a self-organized computing system without any central administrator or infrastructure support. To support truly ad hoc impromptu communication among such uncoordinated devices, a data multipath routing algorithm can be used because there(More)
Efficient routing has always been a matter of concern for mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs). While reactive protocols are competing with the performance of proactive protocols, hybrid protocols have attempted to brew the best of the both. This paper reviews some of the selected literature regarding MANET routing protocols and studies the comparative(More)
BACKGROUND Although a number of studies on infectious disease trends in China exist, these studies have not distinguished the age, period, and cohort effects simultaneously. Here, we analyze infectious disease mortality trends among urban and rural residents in China and distinguish the age, period, and cohort effects simultaneously. METHODS Infectious(More)
TCP (transmission control protocol) will for sure continue to be the major transport protocol in wireless environments, due to its large install-base in existing applications. Indeed, in future ad hoc wireless networks where devices communicate among each other over multihop routes, TCP is expected to be the prominent protocol for data exchange (e.g.,(More)
The TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a critical component in an ad hoc wireless network because of its pervasive usage in various important applications. However, TCP's congestion control mechanism is notoriously ineffective in dealing with time-varying channel errors even for a single wireless link. Indeed, the adverse effects of the inefficient(More)
