Structuring unreliable radio networks
In this paper we study the problem of building a connected dominating set with constant degree (CCDS) in the dual graph radio network model [4,9,10]. This model includes two types of links: reliable, which always deliver messages, and unreliable, which sometimes fail to deliver messages. Real networks compensate for this differing quality by deploying low-layer detection protocols to filter unreliable from reliable links. With this in mind, we begin by presenting an algorithm that solves the CCDS problem in the dual graph model under the assumption that every process u is provided a local link detector set consisting of every neighbor connected to u by a reliable link. The algorithm solves the CCDS problem in O(∆ log2 n b + log3 n) rounds, with high probability, where ∆ is the maximum degree in the reliable link graph, n is the network size, and b is an upper bound in bits on the message size. The algorithm works by first building a Maximal Independent Set (MIS) in log3 n time, ...
