In this paper we consider the problem of sharing the costs of multicast transmissions in ad hoc wireless networks. Assuming that the receiving users are selfish, we provide strategy- proof mechanisms that are either optimally budget balanced or efficient for the case in which the distance-power gradient α =1 or the stations belong to a ne-dimensional Euclidean space.Then, by extending to multicasting previous results on wireless broadcasting,we show the existence of efficiently computable 2(3 d… CONTINUE READING
