A Multiobjective Optimization Framework for Routing in Wireless Ad Hoc Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Wireless ad hoc networks are seldom characterized by one single performance metric, yet the current literature lacks a flexible framework to assist in characterizing the design tradeoffs in such networks. In this work, the authors address this problem by proposing a new modeling framework for routing in ad hoc networks, which used in conjunction with metaheuristic multi-objective search algorithms, will result in a better understanding of network behavior and performance when multiple criteria are relevant. The approach is to take a holistic view of the network that captures the cross-interactions among interference management techniques implemented at various layers of the protocol stack.
