Hardness and approximation of Gathering in static radio networks.

[PDF

Abstract: 
In this paper, we address the problem of gathering information in a specific node (or \emph{sink}) of a radio network, where interference constraints are present. We take into account the fact that, when a node transmits, it produces interference in an area bigger than the area in which its message can actually be received. The network is modeled by a graph; a node is able to transmit one unit of information to the set of vertices at distance at most $\dt$ in the graph, but when doing so it generates interference that does not allow nodes at distance up to $\di$ ($\di \ge \dt$) to listen to other transmissions. Time is synchronous and divided into timesteps in each of which a round (set of noninterfering radio transmissions) is performed. We give general lower bounds on the number of rounds required to gather into a sink of a general graph, and present an algorithm working on any graph, with an approximation factor of 4. We also show that the problem of finding an optimal strategy for gathering is \textsc{NPhard}, for any values of $\di$ and $\dt$. If $\di>\dt$, we show that the problem remains hard when restricted to the uniform case where each vertex in the network has exactly one piece of information to communicate to the sink.

Fault tolerant on board networks with priorities.
Networks,
47(1):925,
2006.
[PDF

Abstract: 
We consider onboard networks in satellites interconnecting entering signals (inputs) to amplifiers (outputs). The connections are made via expensive switches, each of which has four available links. The paths connecting inputs to outputs should be linkdisjoint. Some of the input signals, called priorities, must be connected to the amplifiers which provide the best quality of service (that is to some specific outputs). In practice, amplifiers are prone to fail and the faults cannot be repaired. Therefore, extra outputs have to be built into the network to ensure that every input can be routed to operational outputs. Given three integers, $n$, $p$, and $f$, we would like to design a low cost network (where the network cost is proportional to the total number of switches) such that it is possible to route all $n$ inputs to $n$ operational amplifiers, and to route the $p$ priorities to the $p$ best quality amplifiers for any set of $f$ faulty and $p$ bestquality amplifiers. Let $R(n,p,f)$ be the minimum number of switches of such a network. We prove here that $R(n,p,f)\leq \frac{n+f}{2} \lceil \log_2 p \rceil +\frac{5}{2}(np) +g(f)$ with $g$ a function depending only on $f$. We then compute $R(n,p,f)$ exactly for a few small values of $p$ and $f$.

Hierarchical Aggregation of Multicast Trees in Large Domains.
Journal of Communications (JCM),
6(1):3344,
September 2006.
[PDF
]
Abstract: 
Multicast tree aggregation is a technique that reduces the control overhead and the number of states induced by multicast. The main idea of this protocol is to route several groups to the same distribution tree in order to reduce the total number of multicast forwarding states. In this article, we show that this technique cannot be applied to large domains. Indeed, when the number of border routers is large, actual tree aggregation protocols are unable to find similar groups to aggregate to the same tree. However, by dividing the domain into several smaller subdomains, we prove that it is possible to achieve important savings. A hierarchical protocol is designed to interconnect the trees of the subdomains together. While previous protocols cannot cope with more than 25 border routers, our protocol still shows significant benefits for domains with 200 border routers.

Abstract: 
This paper deals with the design of on board networks in satellites (also called Traveling wave tube Amplifiers (TWTA)). These networks should connect signals arriving on some ports of the satellite to amplifiers, even in case of failures of some amplifiers. They are made of links and expensive switches each with 4 links. So, the aim is to design networks having as few switches as possible and satisfying the following property: \emph{there exist $p$ edgedisjoint paths from the $p$ signals arriving on $p + \lambda$ ports (inputs) to any set of $p$ amplifiers (outputs) chosen from the $p+k$ total number of outputs}. We call such networks \emph{valid $(p,\lambda,k)$networks} and want to determine the minimum number of switches $\mathcal{N}(p, \lambda,k)$ of such networks. By symmetry we suppose $\lambda \leq k$. We give tight results for small values of $k$ and asymptotic results when $k = O(\log p)$ which are tight when $k=\Theta(\lambda)$ and when $\lambda=0$.

Abstract: 
Rectangular dualization is an effective, hierarchically oriented visualization method for network topologies and can be used in many other problems having in common with networks the condition that objects and their interoccurring relations are represented by means of a planar graph. However, only 4connected triangulated planar graphs admit a rectangular dual. In this paper we present a linear time algorithm to optimally construct a rectangular layout for a general class of graphs and we discuss a variety of application fields where this approach represents an helpful support for visualization tools.

Optimal Solution of the Maximum All Request Path Grooming Problem.
In Advanced International Conference on Telecommunications (AICT),
pages 6p,
2006.
IEEE.
[PDF

Abstract: 
We give an optimal solution to the Maximum All Request Path Grooming (MARPG) problem motivated by a traffic grooming application. The MARPG problem consists in finding the maximum number of connections which can be established in a path of size $N$, where each arc has a capacity or bandwidth $C$ (grooming factor). We present a greedy algorithm to solve the problem and an explicit formula for the maximum number of requests that can be groomed. In particular, if $C = s(s 1)/2$ and $N > s(s1)$, an optimal solution is obtained by taking all the requests of smallest length, that is of length 1 to $s$. However this is not true in general since anomalies can exist. We give a complete analysis and the exact number of such anomalies.

In particular, if $C = s(s 1)/2$ and $N > s(s1)$, an optimal solution is obtained by taking all the requests of smallest length, that is of length 1 to $s$. However this is not true in general since anomalies can exist. We give a complete analysis and the exact number of such anomalies.},

Abstract: 
We study the minimization of ADMs (AddDrop Multiplexers) in Optical WDM Networks with Bidirectional Ring topology considering symmetric shortest path routing and alltoall unitary requests. We insist on the statement of the problem, which had not been clearly stated before in the bidirectional case. Optimal solutions had not been found up to date. In particular, we study the case $C = 2$ and $C = 3$ (giving either optimal constructions or nearoptimal solutions) and the case $C = k(k 1)/2$ (giving optimal decompositions for specific congruence classes of $N$). We state a general Lower Bound for all the values of $C$ and $N$, and we improve this Lower Bound for $C=2$ and $C=3$ (when $N=4t 3)$. We also include some comments about the simulation of the problem using Linear Programming.

Abstract: 
\emph{L'encerclement} dans les graphes est l'un des outils les plus populaires pour analyser la recherche, par une \'equipe d'agents, d'un fugitif omniscient, arbitrairement rapide et invisible dans un r\'eseau. Les solutions existantes au probl\`eme de l'encerclement dans les graphes souffrent cependant d'un s\'erieux inconv\'enient : elles sont toutes centralis\'ees et supposent que les agents \'evoluent dans un environnement synchrone. En particulier : (1) la strat\'egie d'encerclement dans un r\'eseau est calcul\'ee partant d'une connaissance compl\`ete du r\'eseau, et (2) les mouvements des agents sont control\'es par un m\'ecanisme centralis\'e qui d\'ecide \`a chaque \'etape quel agent doit se d\'eplacer et quel mouvement il doit r\'ealiser. Cet article traite de l'encerclement dans les graphes r\'ealis\'e de mani\`ere r\'epartie. Nous pr\'esentons un protocole r\'eparti qui permet \`a des agents, dont la m\'emoire est de taille logarithmique en la taille du r\'eseau, de nettoyer le r\'eseau de facon d\'ecentralis\'ee. La mani\`ere dont les agents se d\'eplacent pour r\'ealiser la strat\'egie d'encerclement est calcul\'ee en temps r\'eel par les agents euxm\^eme, {\emph sans qu'ils ne connaissent la topologie du r\'eseau \`a l'avance}. Tout cela est r\'ealis\'e dans un environnement asynchrone, c'est\`adire que notre protocole impl\'emente le m\'ecanisme de synchronisation n\'ecessaire de mani\`ere d\'ecentralis\'ee. La performance de la strat\'egie d'encerclement est mesur\'ee par le nombre d'agents utilis\'es pour capturer l'intrus. Selon cette mesure, nous prouvons que notre protocole a un rapport de comp\'etitivit\'e de $3/2$ et que c'est le meilleur ratio atteignable par n'importe quel protocole r\'eparti.

Abstract: 
This paper addresses the graph searching problem in a distributed setting. We describe a distributed protocol that enables searchers with logarithmic size memory to clear any network, in a fully decentralized manner. The search strategy for the network in which the searchers are launched is computed online by the searchers themselves \emph{without knowing the topology of the network in advance}. It performs in an asynchronous environment, i.e., it implements the necessary synchronization mechanism in a decentralized manner. In every network, our protocol performs a connected strategy using at most $k+1$ searchers, where $k$ is the minimum number of searchers required to clear the network in a monotone connected way, computed in the centralized and synchronous setting.

We study the minimization of ADMs (AddDrop Multiplexers) in Optical WDM Networks with Bidirectional Ring topology considering symmetric shortest path routing and alltoall unitary requests. We insist on the statement of the problem, which had not been clearly stated before in the bidirectional case. Optimal solutions had not been found up to date. In particular, we study the case C = 2 and C = 3 (giving either optimal constructions or nearoptimal solutions) and the case C = k(k 1)/2 (giving optimal decompositions for specific congruence classes of N). We state a general Lower Bound for all the values of C and N, and we improve this Lower Bound for C=2 and C=3 (when N=4t 3). We also include some comments about the simulation of the problem using Linear Programming.

Connected Treewidth and Connected Graph Searching.

Abstract: 
We give a constructive proof of the equality between \emph{treewidth} and \emph{connected treewidth}. More precisely, we describe an $O(nk^3)$time algorithm that, given any $n$node width$k$ treedecomposition of a connected graph $G$, returns a connected treedecomposition of $G$ of width $\leq k$. The equality between treewidth and connected treewidth finds applications in \emph{graph searching} problems. First, using equality between treewidth and connected treewidth, we prove that the \emph{connected} search number $\cs(G)$ of a connected graph $G$ is at most $\log{n}+1$ times larger than its search number. Second, using our constructive proof of equality between treewidth and connected treewidth, we design an \\$O(\log n\sqrt{\log OPT})$approximation algorithm for connected search, running in time $O(t(n)+nk^3\log^{3/2}k+m\log n)$ for $n$node $m$edge connected graphs of treewidth at most $k$, where $t(n)$ is the timecomplexity of the fastest algorith m for approximating the treewidth, up to a factor $O(\sqrt{\log OPT})$.

Abstract: 
{Search games are attractive for their correspondence with classical width parameters. For instance, the \emph{invisible} search number (a.k.a. \emph{node} search number) of a graph is equal to its pathwidth plus~1, and the \emph{visible} search number of a graph is equal to its treewidth plus~1. The \emph{connected} variants of these games ask for search strategies that are connected, i.e., at every step of the strategy, the searched part of the graph induces a connected subgraph. We focus on \emph{monotone} search strategies, i.e., strategies for which every node is searched exactly once. The monotone connected visible search number of an $n$node graph is at most $O(\log n)$ times its visible search number. First, we prove that this logarithmic bound is tight. Precisely, we prove that there is an infinite family of graphs for which the ratio monotone connected visible search number over visible search number is $\Omega(\log n)$. Second, we prove that, as opposed to the nonconnected variant of visible graph searching, ``recontamination helps" for connected visible search. Precisely, we prove that, for any $k \geq 4$, there exists a graph with connected visible search number at most $k$, and monotone connected visible search number $>k$.}, url = {http://www.informatik.unitrier.de/~ley/db/conf/wg/wg2006.shtml}, pdf = {http://wwwsop.inria.fr/members/Nicolas.Nisse/publications/WG06_nisse.ps}

Directions to use Probabilistic Algorithms for Cardinality for DNA Analysis.
In Journées Ouvertes Biologie Informatique Mathématiques (JOBIM 2006),
pages 35,
July 2006.
[PDF
]
Abstract: 
Probabilistic algorithms for cardinality allow to estimate the number of distinct words of very large multisets. Best of them are very fast (only few tens of CPU operations per element) and use constant memory (standard error of $c \sqrt M$ attained using $M$ units of memory) to be compared with the linear memory used by exact algorithms. Hence they allow to do multiple experiments in few minutes with few KiloBytes on files of several GigaBytes that would be unfeasible with exact counting algorithms. Such algorithms are used here to analyze base correlation in human genome.

Abstract: 
Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are composed of communicat ing mobile devices capable of spontaneously interconnecting without any preexisting infrastructure. The wide spread of mobile devices(i.e. phones, PDAs, laptops) enables the deployment of metropolitan ad hoc networks, referred to as MobileMANs. Until recently, MobileMAN simu lation suffered from a lack of appropriate tools. Therefore a new class of simulators dedicated to MobileMANs is appearing. This paper presents Mad hoc, a MANETs simulator which belongs to this class. In addi tion to providing particular models for the simulation of numerous nodes evolving in a metropolitan environment, Mad hoc comes with appropri ate tools for the development and the monitoring of ad hoc applications. Mad hocÃs applications are presented.

Abstract: 
Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are dynamic networks populated by mobile stations. Stations in MANETs are usually laptops, PDAs or mobile phones. These devices feature Bluetooth and/or IEEE 802.11 (WiFi) network interfaces and communicate in a decentralized manner. Mobility is a key feature of MANETs. Because of their high cost and their lack of flexibility of such networks, experimentation is mostly achievable through simulation. Numerous tools exist for MANETs simulation, including ns2 and GloMoSim which are the two most popular ones. This paper provides a State of the Art of MANETs simulators and associated simulation techniques. First it gives an overview of the domain. Then it provides a map of the main characteristics that MANETs simulation tools should feature and the current support of these. Finally, a description for each simulator is provided, including an explanation of what make them appealing solutions.

Abstract: 
This paper presents a new broadcasting protocol called Delayed Flooding with Cumulative Neighborhood (DFCN) designed for wireless ad hoc networks. DFCN enables bandwidthefficient broadcasting in wide area network composed of large number of mobile devices. The protocol was validated trough simulation which proved its efficiency and costeffectiveness. Comparison with other well known protocols has shown that the proposed protocol outperforms them in such terms as a number of emissions and redundant receptions.

Optimal Broadcasting in Metropolitan MANETs Using Multiobjective Scatter Search.

Springer.
[WWW

Abstract: 
Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANETs) are composed of a set of communicating devices which are able to spontaneously interconnect without any preexisting infrastructure. In such scenario, broadcasting becomes an operation of capital importance for the own existence and operation of the network. Optimizing a broadcasting strategy in MANETs is a multiobjective problem accounting for three goals: reaching as many stations as possible, minimizing the network utilization, and reducing the makespan. In this paper, we face this multiobjective problem with a stateoftheart multiobjective scatter search algorithm called AbSS (Archivebased Scatter Search) that computes a Pareto front of solutions to empower a human designer with the ability of choosing the preferred configuration for the network. Results are compared against those obtained with the previous proposal used for solving the problem, a cellular multiobjective genetic algorithm (cMOGA). We conclude that AbSS outperforms cMOGA with respect to three different metrics.

On the number of MPLS LSP using Multicast Tree Aggregation.
In IEEE Globecom,
pages 5p,
November 2006.
[PDF
]
Abstract: 
Multicast tree aggregation is an efficient proposition that can solve the multicast forwarding state scalability problem. Existing works on tree aggregation have focused on developing and simulating protocols that build trees dynamically. However, the underlying problem of the impact of the tree construction algorithm on the performance of the protocols remains untouched. In this paper, we propose a study on the number of trees that need to be configured in a domain depending on the tree construction algorithm. We ran extensive simulations on several real domains and with different tree construction algorithms. Our results show that for a given set of multicast groups, even when this set includes all the possible groups, the number of trees that need to be configured is small. This allows a network administrator to configure offline all these trees in order to maintain a stable set of trees and to have knowledge of the routes used by the multicast packets. Knowing the set of all the possible trees is also useful to determine the best subset to configure and to give an upper bound of the number of different trees.

Multicast Tree Aggregation in Large Domains.
In IFIP Networking,
number 3976,
pages 691702,
2006.
[PDF
]
Abstract: 
Tree aggregation is an ecient proposition that can solve the problem of multicast forwarding state scalability. The main idea of tree aggregation is to force several groups to share the same delivery tree: in this way, the number of multicast forwarding states per router is reduced. Unfortunately, when achieving tree aggregation in large do mains, few groups share the same tree and the aggregation ratio is small. In this paper, we propose a new algorithm called TALD (Tree Aggrega tion in Large Domains) that achieves tree aggregation in domains with a large number of nodes. The principle of TALD is to divide the domain into several subdomains and to achieve the aggregation in each of the subdomain separately. In this way, there is possible aggregation in each of the subdomain and the number of forwarding states is signicantly reduced. We show the performance of our algorithm by simulations on a Rocketfuel network of 200 routers.

Active Monitoring of Link Delays in Case of Asymmetric Routes.
In IEEE International Conference on Networking (ICN),
pages 6p,
April 2006.
[PDF

Abstract: 
Network monitoring receives signicant interest recently. Indeed, knowledge of link availability and link characteristics is of signicant importance in order to provide efcient routing. In this paper, we consider active network monitoring of link delays in a Service Provider or Enterprise IP network using round trip delays. Our proposition guarantees that all links are monitored contrary to previous propositions. Indeed, previous propositions assume symmetric routing in networks when placing the monitoring stations. With this assumption, round trips may be different when routes are asymmetric and link delays are not signi cant. We say that links are not monitored in this case. Previous propositions do not monitor 5.76\0f links in average and 10\ 144861970n worst cases during our simulations while we monitor always 100\36773520000f links. Moreover, in our proposition, the amount of trafc is reduced and the measures are more precise since the distance from a monitoring station (beacon) to the edges is limited by a given bound. Finally, we show during the simulations that the set of beacons is rather stable in case of link failures.

Abstract: 
Assuming a given network topology and a routing protocol, this work is focused on the capacity evaluation of routing protocols based on either a selforganization scheme or a flat approach. To reach this goal, we propose to use linearprogramming formulation to model radio resource sharing as linear constraints. Four models are detailed to evaluate the capacity of any routing scheme in wireless multihops networks. First, two models of fairness are proposed: either each node has a fair access to the channel, or the fairness is among the radio links. Besides, a pessimistic and an optimistic scenarios of spatial reutilization of the medium are proposed, yielding a lower bound and an upper bound on the network capacity for each fairness case. Finally, using this model, we provide a comparative analysis of some flat and selforganized routing protocols

Un r\'eseau $\plk$ est un graphe non orient\'e avec $p + \lambda$ entr\'ees, $p + k$ sorties et des noeuds internes de degr\'e $4$. Un r\'eseau $\plk$ est valide si pour n'importe quel choix de $p$ entr\'ees et de $p$ sorties il existe $p$ chemins ar\^etes disjoints reliant les entr\'ees aux sorties. Dans le cas particulier $\lambda = 0$, un r\'eseau $\plk$ est un \emph{s\'electeur}. Notre objectif est de d\'eterminer $N\plk$ : le nombre minimum de noeuds d'un r\'eseau $\plk$ valide. Pour cela, on utilise une condition suffisante de validit\'e qui nous permet d'obtenir les bornes inf\'erieures pour $N\plk$. D'autre part on propose des constructions de r\'eseaux valides utlisant des \emph{expandeurs}, ce qui donne les bornes supp\'erieures.

Abstract: 
Fomin and Thilikos in \cite{FoTh06} conjectured that there is a constant $c$ such that, for every $2$connected planar graph $G$, $\text{pw}(G^*) \leq 2\text{pw}(G)+c$ (the same question was asked simutaneously by Coudert, Huc and Sereni in \cite{CHS06}). By the results of Boedlander and Fomin~\cite{BoFo02} this holds for every outerplanar graph and actually is tight by Coudert, Huc and Sereni~\cite{CHS06}. In \cite{FoTh06}, Fomin and Thilikos proved that there is a constant $c$ such that the pathwidth of every 3connected graph $G$ satisfies: $\text{pw}(G^*) \leq 6\text{pw}(G)+c$. In this paper we improve this result by showing that the dual a 3connected planar graph has pathwidth at most $3$ times the pathwidth of the primal plus two. We prove also that the question can be answered positively for $4$connected planar graphs.

Hardness and approximation of gathering in static radio networks.
Research Report 5936,
INRIA,
06 2006.
[WWW
] [PDF

Abstract: 
In this paper, we address the problem of gathering information in a specific node (or \emph{sink}) of a radio network, where interference constraints are present. We take into account the fact that, when a node transmits, it produces interference in an area bigger than the area in which its message can actually be received. The network is modeled by a graph; a node is able to transmit one unit of information to the set of vertices at distance at most $\dt$ in the graph, but when doing so it generates interference that does not allow nodes at distance up to $\di$ ($\di \ge \dt$) to listen to other transmissions. Time is synchronous and divided into timesteps in each of which a round (set of noninterfering radio transmissions) is performed. We give general lower bounds on the number of rounds required to gather into a sink of a general graph, and present an algorithm working on any graph, with an approximation factor of 4. We also show that the problem of finding an optimal strategy for gathering is \textsc{NPhard}, for any values of $\di$ and $\dt$. If $\di>\dt$, we show that the problem remains hard when restricted to the uniform case where each vertex in the network has exactly one piece of information to communicate to the sink.

Abstract: 
This article investigates complexity and approximability properties of combinatorial optimization problems yielded by the notion of Shared Risk Resource Group (SRRG). SRRG has been introduced in order to capture network survivability issues where a failure may break a whole set of resources, and has been formalized as colored graphs, where a set of resources is represented by a set of edges with same color. We consider here the analogous of classical problems such as determining paths or cuts with the minimum numbers of colors or color disjoint paths. These optimization problems are much more difficult than their counterparts in classical graph theory. In particular standard relationship such as the Max Flow  Min Cut equality do not hold any longer. In this article we identify cases where these problems are polynomial, for example when the edges of a given color form a connected subgraph, and otherwise give hardness and non approximability results for these problems.

Abstract: 
We are interested in the relation between the pathwidth of a biconnected outerplanar graph and the pathwidth of its (geometric) dual. Bodlaender and Fomin, after having proved that the pathwidth of every biconnected outerplanar graph is always at most twice the pathwidth of its (geometric) dual plus two, conjectured that there exists a constant c such that the pathwidth of every biconnected outerplanar graph is at most c plus the pathwidth of its dual. They also conjectured that this was actually true with c being one for every biconnected planar graph. Fomin proved that the second conjecture is true for all planar triangulations. First, we construct for each p>=1 a biconnected outerplanar graph of pathwidth 2p 1 whose (geometric) dual has pathwidth p 1, thereby disproving both conjectures. Next, we also disprove two other conjectures (one of Bodlaender and Fomin, implied by one of Fomin). Finally we prove, in an algorithmic way, that the pathwidth of every biconnected outerplanar graph is at most twice the pathwidth of its (geometric) dual minus one. A tight interval for the studied relation is therefore obtained, and we show that all cases in the interval happen.

OSA: an Open Componentbased Architecture for DiscreteEvent Simulation.
Technical report RR5762, version 2,
INRIA,
February 2006.
[WWW
] [PDF
]
Abstract: 
This report describes work in progress to initiate the collaborative development of a new software platform for discreteevent simulation studies, the Open Simulation Architecture (OSA). OSA is primarily designed to be a federating platform for the simulation community: it is designed to favour the integration of new or existing contributions at every level of its architecture. This report describes the way OSA provides an open platform intended to support simulationists in a wide set of their simulation activities, and how it favours the reuse and sharing of system models by means of a flexible component model (Fractal). Indeed, OSA supports componentbased modeling, which has many wellknown good properties. Out of these properties is the ability to dispatch the modeling effort amongst several experts each having their own area of system expertise. Clearly, the less experts have to care about areas of expertise of others, the more efficient they are in modeling subsystems in their own area. Furthermore, the process of studying complex systems using discreteevent computer simulations involves several areas of nonsystem expertise, such as discreteevent techniques or experiment planning. In OSA, all these tasks are clearly separated by identifying different kinds of (virtual) users: experimenters, developpers, model architects, and so on. OSA shall eventually supports each of these users by integrating dedicated tools for each of their specific tasks.

Abstract: 
An $(n,k,r)$network is a triple $N=(G,in,out)$ where $G=(V,E)$ is a graph and $in,out$ are integral functions defined on $V$ called input and output functions, such that for any $v \inV$, $in(v)+out(v)+ deg(v)\leq2r$ with $deg(v)$ the degree of $v$ in the graph $G$. The total number of inputs is $in(V)=\sum_v\inVin(v)$, and the total number of outputs is $out(V)=\sum_v\inVout(v)+k$. An $(n,k,r)$network is valid, if for any faulty output function $out'$ (that is such that $out'(v) \leqout(v)$ for any $v \inV$, and $out'(V) = n$), there are $n$ edgedisjoint paths in $G$ such that each vertex $v\inV$ is the initial vertex of $in(v)$ paths and the terminal vertex of $out'(v)$ paths. We investigate the design problem of determining the minimum number of vertices in a valid $(n,k,r)$network and of constructing minimum $(n,k,r)$networks, or at least valid $(n,k,r)$networks with a number of vertices close to the optimal value. We first show $\frac3n+k2r2+ \frac3r^2k \leq\calN(n,k,r)\leq\left\lceil\frack+22r2\right\rceil\fracn2$. We prove a better upper bound when $r\geqk/2$: $\calN(n,k,r) \leq\fracr2+k/2r^22r+k/2 n + O(1)$. Finally, we give the exact value of $\calN(n,k,r)$ when $k\leq6$ and exhibit the corresponding networks.

Abstract: 
In this paper, we study the notion of circular choosability recently introduced by Mohar and Zhu. First, we provide a negative answer to a question of Zhu about circular cliques. We next prove that, for every graph G, cch(G) = O( ch(G) + ln V(G) ). We investigate a generalisation of circular choosability, circular fchoosability, when f is a function of the degrees. We also consider the circular choice number of planar graphs. Mohar asked for the value of tau := sup{ cch(G) : G is planar }, and we prove that 6 <= tau <= 8, thereby providing a negative answer to another question of Mohar. Finally, we study the circular choice number of planar and outerplanar graphs with prescribed girth, and graphs with bounded density.

Abstract: 
A plane graph is lfacially kcolourable if its vertices can be coloured with k colours such that any two distinct vertices on a facial segment of length at most l are coloured differently. We prove that every plane graph is 3facially 11colourable. As a consequence, we derive that every 2connected plane graph with maximum facesize at most 7 is cyclically 11colourable. These two bounds are for one off from those that are proposed by the (3l+1)Conjecture and the Cyclic Conjecture.

Abstract: 
HoÃ ngReed conjecture asserts that every digraph $D$ has a collection $\cal C$ of circuits $C_1,\dots,C_{\delta ^+}$, where $\delta ^+$ is the minimum outdegree of $D$, such that the circuits of $\cal C$ have a forestlike structure. Formally, $V(C_i)\cap (V(C_1)\cup \dots \cup V(C_{i1}))\leq 1$, for all $i=2,\dots ,\delta^+$. We verify this conjecture for the class of tournaments.

Abstract: 
We first show that the choose number of the square of a subcubic graph with maximum average degree less than 18/7 is at most 6. As a corollary, we get that the choose number of the square of a planar graph with girth at least 9 is at most 6. We then show that the choose number of the square of a subcubic planar graph with girth at least 13 is at most 5.

Abstract: 
La capacitÃ© d'un rÃ©seau ad hoc sans fil passe mal Ã l'Ã©chelle lorsque le nombre $N$ de noeuds du rÃ©seau augmente. Si chaque noeud choisit un interlocuteur parmi les autres noeuds, le dÃ©bit avec lequel les noeuds peuvent communiquer doit tendre vers $0$ au moins en $\mathcal{O}\left(1/\sqrt{N}\right)$ lorsque $N$ tend vers l'infini. Le problÃ¨me fondamental des rÃ©seaux ad hoc sans fil est de trouver un compromis entre connectivitÃ© et parallÃ©lisme: il est nÃ©cessaire d'utiliser une puissance d'Ã©mission suffisante pour Ã©viter d'avoir des noeuds isolÃ©s mais il faut aussi limiter cette puissance pour limiter les interfÃ©rences et ainisi obtenir du parallÃ©lisme dans l'accÃ¨s au mÃ©dium. L'objectif principal de cette Ã©tude est de proposer des protocoles de routage qui permettent d'atteindre la borne asymptotique pour la capacitÃ© et de dÃ©passer le rÃ©sultat dÃ©jÃ connu de $\mathcal{O}\left(1/\sqrt{N\ln(N)}\right)$ dans le cadre des rÃ©seaux alÃ©atoires sur le carrÃ© unitÃ© $[0,1]\times[0,1]$ avec un trafic Ã©galement alÃ©atoire. Une premiÃ¨re approche Ã l'aide d'un routage local utilisant une puissance d'Ã©mission variable permet de se rapprocher de cette borne sans toutefois l'atteindre en raison d'une mauvaise rÃ©partition du trafic due Ã l'aspect alÃ©atoire du rÃ©seau. Une seconde approche fondÃ©e sur la thÃ©orie de la percolation aboutit Ã l'existence avec une forte probabilitÃ© d'un nombre suffisant de chemins disjoints formÃ©s de {\og petits sauts \fg} et traversant le rÃ©seau. Ces chemins permettent d'acheminer l'ensemble du trafic avec suffisamment de parallÃ©lisme pour atteindre asymptotiquement un dÃ©bit en $\Theta\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{N}}\right)$ pour chaque noeud. On s'appuie en outre sur des simulations afin de valider empiriquement les rÃ©sultats de l'analyse thÃ©orique.

About the Capacity of Flat and SelfOrganized Ad Hoc and Hybrid Networks.
Research Report,
INRIA Research Report 5977,
2006.
[WWW

Abstract: 
Ad hoc networking specific challenges foster a strong research effort on efficient protocols design. Routing protocols based on a selforganized structure have been studied principally for the robustness and the scalability they provide. On the other hand, selforganization schemes may decrease the network capacity since they concentrate the traffic on privileged links. This paper presents four models for evaluating the capacity of a routing schemes on 802.11 like networks. Our approach consists in modeling the radio resource sharing principles of 802.11 like MAC protocols as a set of linear constraints. We have implemented two models of fairness. The first one assumes that nodes have a fair access to the channel, while the second one assumes that on the radio links. We then develop a pessimistic and an optimistic scenarii of spatial reutilization of the medium, yielding a lower bound and an upper bound on the network capacity for each fairness case. Our models are independent of the routing protocols and provide therefore a relevant framework for their comparison. We apply our models to a comparative analysis of the wellknown shortest path base flat routing protocol OLSR against two main selforganized structure approaches, VSR, and Wu \& Li's protocols. This study concludes on the relevance of selforganized approaches from the network capacity point of view.
