  • Connected dominating set (CDs) has been proposed as virtual backbone or spine of wireless ad hoc networks. Three distributed approximation algorithms have been proposed in the literature for minimum CDS. We first reinvestigate their performances. None of these algorithms have constant approximation factors. Thus these algorithms can not guarantee to generate a CDs of small size. Their message complexities can be as high as O(n/sup 2/), and their time complexities may also be as large as O(n/sup… CONTINUE READING
