In this paper, we propose a solution to the distributed topology formation problem for large-scale sensor networks with multi-source multicast flows. The proposed solution is based on game-theoretic approaches in conjunction with network coding. The proposed algorithm requires significantly low computational complexity, while it is known as NP-hard to find an optimal topology for network coding deployed multi-source multicast flows. In particular, we formulate the problem of distributed network topology forma…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
