We consider the problem of computing an optimal range assignment in a wireless network which allows a speciﬁed source station to perform a broadcast operation. In particular, we consider this problem as a special case of the following more general combinatorial optimization problem, called Minimum Energy Consumption Broadcast Subgraph (in short, MECBS): Given a weighted directed graph and a speciﬁed source node, ﬁnd a minimum cost range assignment to the nodes, whose corresponding transmission graph contains a spanning tree rooted at the source node. We ﬁrst prove that MECBS is not approximable within a sub-logarithmic factor (unless P=NP). We then consider the restriction of MECBS to wireless networks and we prove several positive and negative results, depending on the geometric space dimension and on the distance-power gradient. The main result is a polynomial-time approximation algorithm for the NP-hard case in which both the dimension and the gradient are equal to 2: This a...
