Analysis of Node Placement in Wireless Mesh Networks Using Friedman Test: A Comparison Study for Genetic Algorithms and Hill Climbing

In this paper, we deal with connectivity and coverage problem in Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). We used Friedman test to check if we can compare Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Hill Climbing (HC). We found out that GA and HC have differences in their performance. Then, we used the implemented systems WMN-GA and WMN-HC to evaluate and compare the performance of… CONTINUE READING
