26 Mar 2000TL;DR: A heuristic to form d-clusters in a wireless ad hoc network that tends to re-elect existing clusterheads even when the network configuration changes and has a tendency to evenly distribute the mobile nodes among the clusterheads, and evently distribute the responsibility of acting as clusterheads among all nodes.

Abstract: An ad hoc network may be logically represented as a set of clusters. The clusterheads form a d-hop dominating set. Each node is at most d 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 1-hop clusters. We show that the minimum d-hop dominating set problem is NP-complete. Then we present a heuristic to form d-clusters in a wireless ad hoc network. Nodes are assumed to have a 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 d wireless hops away from its clusterhead. The value of d 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 configuration changes. This helps to reduce the communication overheads during transition from old clusterheads to new clusterheads. Also, there is a tendency to evenly distribute the mobile nodes among the clusterheads, and evently distribute the responsibility of acting as clusterheads among all nodes. Thus, the heuristic is fair and stable. Simulation experiments demonstrate that the proposed heuristic is better than the two earlier heuristics, namely the LCA and degree-based solutions.

^{1}TL;DR: A general technique that can be used to obtain approximation algorithms for various NP-complete problems on planar graphs, which includes maximum independent set, maximum tile salvage, partition into triangles, maximum H-matching, minimum vertex cover, minimum dominating set, and minimum edge dominating set.

Abstract: This paper describes a general technique that can be used to obtain approximation schemes for various NP-complete problems on planar graphs. The strategy depends on decompos- ing a planar graph into subgraphs of a form we call k-outerplanar. For fixed k, the problems of interest are solvable optimally in linear time on k-outerplanar graphs by dynamic programming. For general planar graphs, if the problem is a maximization problem, such as maximum independent set, this technique gives for each k a linear time algorithm that produces a solution whose size is at least k/(k + 1)optimal. If the problem is a minimization problem, such as minimum vertex cover, it gives for each k a linear time algorithm that produces a solution whose size is at most (k + 1)/k optimal. Taking k = (c log log nl or k = (c log nl, where n is the number of nodes and c is some constant, we get polynomial time approximation algorithms whose solution sizes converge toward optimal as n increases. The class of problems for which this approach provides approximation schemes includes maximum independent set, maximum tile salvage, partition into triangles, maximum H-matching, minimum vertex cover, minimum dominat- ing set, and minimum edge dominating set. For these and certain other problems, the proof of solvability on k-outerplanar graphs also enlarges the class of planar gmphs for which the problems are known to be solvable in polynomial time.
