Broadcast minimizing strategies in ad-hoc networks, eg. MPR, fisheye
Their are many mechanisms available to minimize the broadcasting problem in ad-hoc networks. For example Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) makes use of Multi Point Relays (MPR), recently their have been proposals around the use of Connected Dominating Sets (CDS) for AODV and DYMO and Fisheye routing has been proposed which forces a node to only see a small porition of the network within a near vacinity, where the radius is chosen using optimiaztion techniques. Some propoer analysis needs to be done on all these trategies to understand the degree to which they improve performance.
