  journal={Ad Hoc Networks},
With non-uniform traffic patterns in wireless sensor networks due to the manyto-one nature of communications, the traditional definition of connectivity in graph theory does not seem to be sufficient to satisfy the requirements of sensor networks. In this work, a new notion of connectivity (called pathimplementability) is defined which represents the ability of sensor nodes to relay traffic along a given direction field (referred to as information flow vector field) ~ D. The magnitude of… CONTINUE READING
