Efficient Reachability Query Evaluation in Large Spatiotemporal Contact Datasets

Provided by: VLD Digital Topic: Networking Date Added: Aug 2012 Format: PDF
With the advent of reliable positioning technologies and prevalence of location-based services, it is now feasible to accurately study the propagation of items such as infectious viruses, sensitive information pieces, and malwares through a population of moving objects, e.g., individuals, mobile devices, and vehicles. In such application scenarios, an item passes between two objects when the objects are sufficiently close (i.e., when they are, so-called, in contact), and hence once an item is initiated, it can penetrate the object population through the evolving network of contacts among objects, termed contact network.
