Abstract

We consider the problem of maximizing the lifetime of a given multicast connection in mobile ad hoc networks that use omni-directional antennas and have limited energy resources. We present two distributed multicast algorithms BEEM and DMLM for this problem. In our distributed algorithms, each node requires only the knowledge of its distance to all neighboring nodes and distances between its neighboring nodes. The extensive simulation results have shown that our DMLM algorithm is very efficient in terms of multicast lifetime.
