Executive Summary

The authors study the dissemination of common information from a source to multiple nodes within a multihop wireless network, where nodes are equipped with uniform omni-directional antennas and have a fixed cost per packet transmission. While many nodes may be interested in the dissemination service, their valuation or utility for such a service is usually private information. A desirable routing and charging mechanism encourages truthful utility reports from the nodes. They provide both negative and positive results towards such mechanism design.
