Connected Dominating Sets (CDSs) can serve as virtual backbones for wireless networks. A smaller virtual backbone (minimum size CDS) incurs less communication overhead. Unfortunately, computing a minimum size CDS is NP-hard and thus many algorithms were developed which concentrates on how to construct smaller CDSs. Aiming for minimum number of nodes in CDS, results in CDSs that are highly unstable. Here the authors present four CDS algorithms which are constructed based on strategy, density, Threshold Neighborhood Distance Ratio (TNDR) and velocity.
