Transceiver duty-cycling (DC) is a popular technique to conserve energy in a wireless sensor network (WSN). In this thesis, our overall objective is to study the performance of a DC WSN. Namely, we consider the performance of a DC WSN from the point of throughput, as well as energy consumption,...
Scheduling problems are problems in which jobs are assigned to machines at particular times. A common objective of scheduling is to schedule as many jobs before their deadline as possible, called Throughput Maximization. In this thesis, we provide algorithms for various...
Application-layer versus Network-layer Multicast: Networking Load, Link Stress, and Distribution DelayDownload
Multicast is the task of disseminating a message from a source to a set of destinations. If supported by the network and switches, multicast can be performed at the network layer. The alternative solution is application-layer multicast (ALM) which disseminates the message through a set of unicast...
Approximation Algorithms for Multi-processor Task Scheduling Problems on Identical Parallel ProcessorsDownload
In this thesis we present approximation algorithms for some multi-processor task scheduling problems. In a scheduling problem, there is a set of processors P that can be used to process a set of tasks T and the goal is to find a feasible scheduling of the tasks on the processors, while optimizing...
The allocation of resources over time, referred to as resource scheduling, in large-scale construction environments is a challenging problem. Although traditional network scheduling techniques are the most popular scheduling techniques in the construction industry, they are ineffective in...
The Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have emerged as a new paradigm for collecting and processing data from physical environments, such as wild life sanctuaries, large warehouses, and battlefields. Users can access sensor data by issuing queries over the network, e.g., to find what are the 10...
The earthwork operations for reclamation add challenges and complications to common earthworks schedule and aspects such as placement locations and hauling routes…etc. The reclamation earthworks require that the soil layers structure before disturbing the land must remain the same after...
Multi-hop wireless mesh networks (WMNs) provide a cost-effective means to enable broadband wireless access (BWA) services to end users. Such WMNs are required to support different classes of traffic where each class requires certain quality of service (QoS) levels. The research direction...
