Washington, April 24 : A Dutch researcher at the Eindhoven University of Technology has developed algorithms for wireless networks that focus on optimising communication to a central point in such networks, by minimising processing times and the communication costs.
Peter Korteweg says that an important problem in online networks is the communication of data to a central point in the network.
He says that the quality of the solution depends on several criteria, such as the energy cost for communication and the time needed to collect data.
The researcher studied subsidiary aspects like minimising the maximum communication costs, minimising the time needed to collect all data, and minimising the processing time of messages.
Korteweg says that his study provides casts light on the effect that faster communication resources can have on the quality of the algorithm.
He says that his work also provides an algorithm that ensures that both the communication costs and the message delays deviate as little as possible from of the best offline solution.
