Broadcast and multicast operations which disseminate information network wide are important features in multi-hop wireless networks. This paper shows how network coding can be applied in wireless in ad hoc networks. The authors focus on broadcast traffic and design a network coding-based scheme that they compare against simpler solutions, through extensive simulations. Their goal is to assess the performance of the proposed network coding scheme in wireless ad hoc networks in both realistic MAC and physical are considered and when mobility of nodes is considered as well.
