In the following paper, we study the tradeoff between network utility and network lifetime for energy-constrained wireless sensor networks(WSNs). By introducing a parameter r, we combine these two objectives into a single weighted objective, and consider rate control and routing in this tradeoff framework simultaneously. First, using the dual decomposition method, we decompose the tradeoff model into two subproblems: congestion control/routing problem and network lifetime problem, both of which… CONTINUE READING
