Random Walks on Digraphs: A Theoretical Framework for Estimating Transmission Costs in Wireless Routing

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Due to the unique characteristics of wireless technologies and the dynamics in the environments (e.g., Mobility and interference) they operate in, wireless channels are known to be time-varying, unreliable, and asymmetric. Furthermore, wireless networks are often designed to support certain applications or missions, and deployed in specific environments. For these reasons, a plethora of wireless mechanisms - especially, routing algorithms and protocols - have been proposed and developed to achieve a range of different objectives such as throughput, latency, energy consumption, network life time, and so forth.
