The authors consider the known localized multicast protocol MSTEAM and derive the energy consumed by the multicast tree constructed by this protocol in the best case. Moreover, he show that the length of multicast links connecting into a multicast branch cannot be bounded from above. For typical wireless networks where links have a limited communication range, however, he can show that asymptotically the relation between the derived best case energy consumption of MSTEAM and a known lower bound on multicast energy consumption is limited by a factor of 2.
