A cluster-based dynamic load balancing middleware protocol for grids
We describe a hierarchical dynamic load balancing protocol for Grids. The Grid consists of clusters and each cluster is represented by a coordinator. Each coordinator first attempts to balance the load in its cluster and ...
A replication-based fault tolerance protocol using group communication for the grid
We describe a replication-based protocol that uses group communication for fault tolerance in the Computational Grid. The Grid is partitioned into a number of clusters and each cluster has a designated coordinator that ...
A distributed backbone formation algorithm for mobile ad hoc networks
Construction of a backbone architecture is an important issue in mobile ad hoc networks(MANET)s to ease routing and resource management. We propose a new fully distributed algorithm for backbone formation in MANETs that ...
A distributed wakening based target tracking protocol for wireless sensor networks
We propose a two layer protocol for tracking fast targets in sensor networks. At the lower layer, the Distributed Spanning Tree Algorithm (DSTA)  partitions the network into clusters with controllable diameter and ...
