A maximum degree self-stabilizing spanning tree algorithm
Spanning trees are fundamental topological structures in distributed environments which ease many applications that require frequent communication between nodes. In this paper, we examine and compare two spanning tree ...
A hierarchical leader election protocol for mobile ad hoc networks
Leader Election is an important problem in mobile ad hoc networks and in distributed computing systems. In this study, we propose a hierarchical, cluster based protocol to elect a leader in a mobile ad hoc network. The ...
A survey of agent technologies for wireless sensor networks
(Medknow Publications and Media, 2011-03)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) do not have a fixed infrastructure and consist of sensor nodes that perform sensing and communicating tasks. The WSNs have large application spectrum such as habitat monitoring, military ...
Resource allocation algorithm for a relational join operator in grid systems
(Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
Grid systems become very popular during the last decade because of their rapidly increasing computational capabilities. On the other hand, the advances on different domains cause enormous increase in the scale of the ...
Resource allocation for query processing in grid systems: A survey
(CRL Publishing, 2012-07)
Grid systems are very useful platforms for distributed databases, especially in some situations in which the scale of data sources and user requests is very high. However, the main characteristics of grid systems such as ...
