A classical problem caused by separation of network is partitioning. Predicting those positioning from where the network get separated into the different partition could be a very useful feature that can be provided to applications in a wireless sensors network environment. Indeed, being aware of a future disconnection in the network can help to ensure a better quality of service by adapting the application behavior. The authors propose a distributed algorithm to detect \"Cuts\" in sensor networks, i.e., the failure of a set of nodes that separates the networks into two or more components.
