Abstract

Topology control for fault tolerant communication is one of the important issues in wireless sensor networks. In this paper, we present a simple mechanism of fault tolerant topology control for generating undirected scale-free networks, where the network evolution is determined by the rules of growth and preferential attachment. We prove that this mechanism produces scale-free networks with degree exponent γ = 1. The dynamic analysis found that this evolution model can maintain the character of scale-free networks and can improve the uniformity of the degree distribution of the networks as compared with Barabási and Albert model.
