A new paradigm for load distribution based on power consumption

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ad hoc networks today are playing an important role in some application environments. This paper presents a mathematical model for load distribution in a distributed computing ad hoc network. The model captures various parameters which have significant impact on the node's battery life in order to achieve a balance in power consumption amongst the nodes after distribution and computing. This takes the form of closed form solutions for the optimal data allocation over processors interconnected in either a daisy chain or a two-level d-dimensional tree networks. The work presented is different than all previous work in that it considers the equilibrium of energy in all nodes as the fundamental element in distributing the load rather than the finish time.
