PhD Thesis Title

  • Address Auto-Configuration Protocols and their message complexity in Mobile Adhoc Networks Abstract: My research work focusses on designing of Address auto-configuration protocols (AAPs) in mobile adhoc networks. The main job of AAP is to configure each node uniquely with minimum latency and minimum message overhead. Moreover, nodes are free to move randomly in MANETs, that results in frequent network mergers as well as splits. So, the AAP also needs to maintain the address uniqueness of each node, during the network mergers and when the network splits. My research also focusses on minimizing the message overhead required by a new node to perform autoconfiguration process as well as to minimize the partitioning and merger overhead. Apart from message overhead the other objective is to reduce the latency time required for address allocation procedure.
