Tarzan: Communicating and Moving in Wireless Jungles

Emilio Tuosto
2005 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
Wireless networks allow portable/mobile devices (and the related applications) to communicate each other with radio or infrared signals. Computations on those networks are very sensible to many physical variables (e.g., energy consumption, distance, geographic topology, etc.). We propose Tarzan, a framework based on graph rewriting that easily allow one to express many quantitative aspects of wireless networks. Apart from the expressiveness issue, the main advantage of Tarzan is its formal
