Social Network Analysis and Its Applications in Wireless Sensor and Vehicular Networks
Ever since the introduction of wireless sensor networks in the research and development agenda, the corresponding community has been eager to harness the endless possibilities that this new technology has to offer. These micro sensor nodes, whose capabilities have skyrocketed over the last couple of years, have allowed for a wide range of applications to be created; applications that not so long ago would seem impossible, impractical and time-consuming. It would only be logical to expect that researchers from other fields would take an interest in sensor networks, hence expanding the already wide variety of algorithms, theoretical proofs and applications that existed beforehand. Social Network Analysis is one such field, which has instigated a paradigm shift in the way of authors view sensor nodes.
