Max-Min D-Cluster Formation in Wireless Ad Hoc Networks
— An ad hoc network may be logically represented as a set of clusters. The clusterheads form a -hop dominating set. Each node is at most hops from a clusterhead. Clusterheads form a virtual backbone and may be used to route packets for nodes in their cluster. Previous heuristics restricted themselves to ½-hop clusters. We show that the minimum -hop dominating set problem is NP-complete. Then we present a heuristic to form -clusters in a wireless ad hoc network. Nodes are assumed to have non-deterministic mobility pattern. Clusters are formed by diffusing node identities along the wireless links. When the heuristic terminates, a node either becomes a clusterhead, or is at most wireless hops away from its clusterhead. The value of is a parameter of the heuristic. The heuristic can be run either at regular intervals, or whenever the network configuration changes. One of the features of the heuristic is that it tends to re-elect existing clusterheads even when the network configuratio...
