We consider the problem of neighbor discovery in static wireless ad hoc networks with directional antennas. We propose several probabilistic algorithms in which nodes perform random, independent transmissions to discover their one-hop neighbors. Our neighbor discovery algorithms are classified into two groups, viz. Direct-Discovery Algorithms in which nodes discover their neighbors only upon receiving a transmission from their neighbors and Gossip-based algorithms in which nodes gossip about… CONTINUE READING
