# PDF Ad-hoc networks : fundamental properties and network topologies

### INTRODUCTION

In general there is a trade-off between networks connectivity and sparseness. There is a link u; v in E if and only if the two nodes u and v can communicate directly. The resulting topology Gtc should have the following properties: Property 1 Symmetry :The resulting topology Gtc should be symmetric, that is, node u is a neighbor of node v if and only if node v is a neighbor of node u. Asymmetric communication graphs are 3. A simple ACK message confirming the receipt of a Message, for example, is already a nightmare in an asymmetric graph. Property 2 Connectivity :Two nodes u and v are connected if there is a path from u to v, potentially through multiple hops.

## Topology control in wireless ad hoc networks

If two nodes are connected in G, then they should still be connected in Gtc. Although a minimum spanning tree MST is a sparse connected subgraph, it is often not considered a good topology, since close-by nodes in the original graph G might end up being far away in Gtc G being a ring, for instance. If f c is bounded from above by a linear function in c, the graph Gtc is called a spanner. Researchers have studied a selection of cost metrics, the most popular being i Euclidean distance and ii various energy metrics.

The cost of a link in model i is the Euclidean distance of the link, in model ii the distance is raised to a predefined power.

In both models the cost of a path is commonly defined to be the sum of the costs of all links in the path. As mentioned, the primary target of a topology control algorithm is to abandon long-distance neighbors, or more formally. Property 3 Sparseness :The remaining graph Gtc should be sparse, that is, the number of links should be in the order of the number of nodes, i.

This reflects that not too many close-by nodes must be chosen, which reduces interference and thus saves energy.

Since there still might be some nodes with many neighbors e. In particular the maximum degree in the graph 4. Gtc should be bounded from above by a constant. Since connectivity and sparseness run against each other, topology control has been a thriving research area. In addition to the properties 1, 2, and 3, one can often find secondary targets.

For instance, it is popular and often for free to ask the remaining graph to be planar in order to run a geometric a. When referring to a weighted graph we assume that the weights are symmetric:! The nodes of a Euclidean graph are assumed to be located in a Euclidean plane. Furthermore the edge weight of an edge u; v is defined to be! Note that the definition of Euclidean graphs does not contain a statement on the existence of certain edges. Unit Disk Graphs are often employed to model an ad-hoc network where all network nodes are placed in an unobstructed plane and have equal normalized transmission power and isotropic antennas that is antennas sending with identical power in every direction of the plane.

Strongly related to edge weights is the cost of an edge. The cost of an edge c u; v can be considered to represent the effort an algorithm is required to expend in order to send a message over u; v. A path p u; v from a node u to a node v being a sequence of consecutively contingent edges starting at u and ending at v, the cost of a path jp u; v j is accordingly defined to be the sum of the costs of all edges contained in the path.

Detail Explanation:In the first step each network node u computes a total order over all its neighbors in the network graph G. From an abstract point of view, this order is intended to reflect the quality of the links to the neighbors.
