**Topology Control Algorithms**Davide Bilò e-mail: davide.bilo@univaq.it**What is Topology Control?**• Mechanisms and algorithms to conserve energy in ad-hoc radio and sensor networks • Primary targets of a topology control algorithm • abandon long-distance communication links • prevent the network from being partitioned • Secondary targets • each node has “few” neighbors • routing path does not have to become non-competitively long topology control algorithms should find a good tradeoff between connectivity and sparsness**What does a TC Algorihm do?**Let G=(V,E) be an (undirected*) communication graph where • V is the set of devices with |V|=n • E contains edge (u,v) iff u and v can communicate directly • c(u,v) minimum transmission power at which u has to transmit if it wants to send a msg to v directly (we assume c(u,v)=c(v,u) and c(u,v)pmax) * As devices are homogeneous, i.e., they have the same characteristics, we can assume that if u can communicate with v directly if u transmits at power p(u), then also v can communicate with u directly if v transmits at power p(v)p(u). This implies that the devices all have the same maximum transmission power pmax. Running the TC algorithm A on all the nodes yields a graph GA=(V,EA) which is a subgraph of G**What is the Directed Communication Graph Gin the Euclidean**Model?

Zollinger, XTC: A Practical Topology Control Algorithm for Ad-Hoc Networks, 4th International Workshop on Algorithms for Wireless, Mobile, Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks, 2004 download link: http://www.dcg.ethz.ch/members/roger.html**Algorithm XTC**• works in every environment (i.e., every undirected graph G) • nodes do not need to know their coordinates • nodes do not need to perceive which direction a signal comes from • it is local • and fast (every node communicates with its neighborhood twice) • the system can be • asynchronous • uniform • non-anonymous • satisfies • symmetry • connectivity • low degree • planarity • energy-spanner (in random UDG’s) correctness in UDG’s efficiency**Algorithm XTC**Three main steps: • neighbor ordering • neighbor order exchange • edge selection (Nu neighborhood of u)**Algorithm XTC**• Algorithm XTC (description for node u) • (neighbor ordering) • establish total order <u over u’s neighbors in G v<uw means that uprefers link (u,v) more than link (u,w), i.e., link (u,v) is of higher quality than link (u,w) (for instance, v<uw c(u,v)c(u,w))**Algorithm XTC**• Algorithm XTC (description for node u) • (neighbor ordering) • establish total order <u over u’s neighbors in G • (neighbor order exchange) • broadcast <uto each neighbor in G and receive orders <v from all neighbors v’s • (edge selection (Nu neighborhood of u)) • Nu,Ñu:= • while (<u contains unprocessed neighbors) • v:= least unprocessed neighbor in <u • if (wNuÑu s.t.w<vu) then • Ñu:=Ñu{v} • else • Nu:=Nu{v} i.e., w<uv**Graph Yielded After Execution of Algorithm XTC**Nu is the set of neighbors of u computed by algorithm XTC GXTC=(V,EXTC) where EXTC={(u,v)|u:vNu}**GXTC is Symmetric**• Theorem (Symmetry):GXTC is symmetric, i.e., a node u includes v in Nu iff v includes u in Nv. Proof: Assume u includes v in Ñu. We show that v includes u in Ñv. u includes v in Ñu because wNu Ñu with w <uv and w <vu. When v processes u, wNv Ñv. Thus, v includes u in Ñv. From now on, we will tacitly assume that GXTC is symmetric**Some Assumptions**• Weak Assumption (WA): Neighbor orders are based on function c, i.e., u,w<uv c(u,w)c(u,v) • Strong Assumption (SA): Every edge (u,v) has a weightl(u,v)=(c(u,v),min{id(u)*,id(v)},max{id(u),id(v)}). Neighbor orders are based on the lexicographic order** of edge weights, i.e., u,w<uv l(u,w)< l(u,v) * id(w) is the identifier of node w. Nodes have distinct identifiers. **(,,)<(,,) (<) or ((=) and (<)) or ((=) and (=) and (< ))**GXTC Satisfies Connectivity**• Theorem (Connectivity): Under SA, two nodes u and v are connected in GXTC iff they are connected in G. • Corollary: Under SA, GXTC is connected iff G is connected.**GXTC Satisfies Connectivity**• Theorem (Connectivity): Under SA, two nodes u and v are connected in GXTC iff they are connected in G. Proof: If u and v are connected in GXTC, then they are connected in G. (because GXTC is a subgraph of G) So we have to prove that Claim: if u and v are connected in G, then they are connected in GXTC. We prove Claim by contradiction, i.e., we assume that there exist u and v which are connected in G but not in GXTC. We use the following scheme: • we choose the “right” u and v • we show that u and v are connected in GXTC**GXTC Satisfies ConnectivityHow to choose the “right” u**and v • Theorem (Connectivity): Under SA, two nodes u and v are connected in GXTC iff they are connected in G.

YES u and v is the pair of nodes in Z of minimum value l(u,v)**GXTC Satisfies ConnectivityHow to prove that u and v are**connected in GXTC • Theorem (Connectivity): Under SA, two nodes u and v are connected in GXTC iff they are connected in G. Proof: … What we have shown so far: u and v is the pair of nodes of minimum value l(u,v)among those pair of nodes which are not connected in GXTC but connected in G via a direct edge. u includes v in Ñu because wNu Ñu with w<uv, i.e., w<uv AND w<vu l(u,w) < l(u,v) ANDl(v,w)< l(u,v) u and w are connected in GXTC AND v and w are connected in GXTC u and v are connected in GXTC**GXTC on UDG’s**(remember that (u,v) is in G iffc(u,v)=d(u,v)1)**GXTC on UDG’s has Low Degree**• Theorem (Low Degree): Under WA, if G is a UDG, then GXTC has degree at most 6. Proof: Let uV s.t. (u,v),(u,w)EXTC, i.e., d(u,v),d(u,w)1. We prove that the angle /3 by contradiction. So, assume for contradiction that </3. W.l.o.g., assume v<uw, i.e., d(u,v)d(u,w). Claim: If d(u,v)d(u,w) and </3, then d(v,w)<d(u,w). d(v,w)1 (v,w) is in G. Moreover, v<wu. Thus, u includes w in Ñu. By Theorem (Symmetry)(u,w)EXTC. w contradicts (u,w)EXTC v u**Proof of Claim: If d(u,v)d(u,w) and </3, then**d(v,w)<d(u,w) d(v,w)2=A2+B2 =d(u,v)2-2d(u,v)d(u,w)cos +d(u,w)2 (1-2cos )d(u,v)2+d(u,w)2 <d(u,w)2 (use sin2 +cos2 =1) w A=|d(u,v)-d(u,w)cos | B=d(u,w)sin ([0,/3), cos >0.5) B v u A**GXTC on UDG’s is Planar**• Theorem (Planarity): Under WA, if G is UDG, then GXTC is planar. Proof: Let u,v,w,t be any 4-tuple of distinct nodes forming a quadrangle Q as in figure s.t. d(u,w),d(v,t)1. The only two intersecting edges of Q may be (u,w) and (v,t). We prove that (u,w)EXTC or (v,t)EXTC. (This is almost enough as almost every pair of intersecting edges defines a quadrangle) As the sum of the interior 4 angles of Q is 2, one of them is /2. W.l.o.g., assume /2. d(u,v),d(w,v)<d(u,w). As d(u,w)1, then (u,v),(w,v) are in G. Moreover, v<uw and v<wu. When u considers w, vNuÑu. As v<wu, then u includes w in Ñu. By Theorem (Symmetry)(u,w)EXTC.
