Traditional routing mechanisms for mobile ad hoc networks fail when disconnection is frequent and when the network gets temporarily partitioned. The alternative approach for message delivery is flooding, which, however, comes with large transmission overheads. Gossip-based communication and epidemic-style routing algorithms have been proposed to achieve scalability in distributed systems and to support probabilistic communication when the application of the classic deterministic algorithms and… CONTINUE READING
