Theoretical and Algorithmic Foundations of Wireless Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks

Wireless ad hoc and sensor networks have attracted much attention in the past few years due to their widely potential applications such as airport, conference, hospital, battlefield, rescue, and monitoring scenarios. The ad hoc and sensor networks have their unique characteristics such as infrastructureless, self-organized, self-configured, and supporting interactions with environments, which make them different from classic computer networks and infrastructure-based wireless networks. While much work has been done in protocol and system design, simulation, and experimental study for wireless ad hoc and sensor networks, the theoretical research, however, falls short of the expectation of the future networking deployment.
