Distributed mutual exclusion is a challenging problem in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). Due to the dynamic characteristics of MANETs, only a few algorithms have been proposed. Until recent years, these studies do not consider the more general h-out of-k mutual exclusion problem. In this paper we propose a distributed algorithm to solve the h-out of-k mutual exclusion problem in MANETs. The proposed algorithm has three benefits: (1) it improves the CS execution time by allowing at most k… CONTINUE READING
