In this paper, the authors investigate the fundamental properties of broadcasting in mobile wireless networks. In particular, they characterize broadcast capacity and latency of a mobile network, subject to the condition that the stationary node spatial distribution generated by the mobility model is uniform. They first study the intrinsic properties of broadcasting, and present a broadcasting scheme that simultaneously achieves asymptotically optimal broadcast capacity and latency, subject to a weak upper bound on the maximum node velocity. They then investigate the broadcasting problem when the burden related to selecting relay nodes is taken into account, and present a combined distributed leader election and broadcasting scheme achieving a broadcast capacity and latency which is within a poly-logarithmic factor from optimal.
