Constant-time distributed dominating set approximation

  title={Constant-time distributed dominating set approximation},
  author={Fabian Kuhn and Roger Wattenhofer},
Dominating sets have many applications in distributed computing, and especially in ad-hoc radio networks. One way they are used is in routing: given a graph G representing the communication graph of an ad-hoc network, we can choose the nodes of a dominating set to act as cluster heads. Subsequently, routing is done from cluster head to cluster head, as opposed to from node to node. This reduces the number of nodes we have to route through, and consequently improves the routing efficiency. The… CONTINUE READING
