Minimum Power Multicasting in Wireless Networks Under Probabilistic Node Failures

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors deal with a new probabilistic extension of the Minimum Power Multi-cast (MPM) problem for wireless networks. The deterministic MPM problem consists in assigning transmission powers to the nodes, so that a multihop connection can be established between a source and a given set of destination nodes and the total power required is minimized. They present a new extension to the basic problem, where node failure probabilities for the transmission are explicitly considered. This model reflects the necessity of taking uncertainty into account in the availability of the hosts.
