Merging clustering algorithms in mobile Ad Hoc networks
MetadataShow full item record
Clustering is a widely used approach to ease implementation of various problems such as routing and resource management in mobile ad hoc networks (MANET)s. We first look at minimum spanning tree(MST) based algorithms and then propose a new algorithm for clustering in MANETs. The algorithm we propose merges clusters to form higher level clusters by increasing their levels. We show the operation of the algorithm and analyze its time and message complexities.
