Evolution of Advanced Clustering Methods in WSN: A Review

The use of wireless sensor networks has grown tremendously in the last decade, wireless sensor networks are used in wide variety of applications. Nodes in WSN have limited battery lifetime that affects the performance of the network. Scalability is also a major concern. The use of clustering in WSN provides a solution to this. Many improvements have been made in the basic clustering protocols .In this paper, the authors will review the most recent proposals and implementations of the clustering algorithms used in WSN. They will also try to figure out pros and cons of their working .In the last they will compare the performances of various algorithms.
