"Topology Control in Wireless Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks makes the case for topology control and provides exhaustive coverage of TC techniques in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks, considering both stationary networks, to which most of the existing solutions are tailored, and mobile networks. The author introduces a new taxonomy of topology control and gives a full explication of the applications and challenges of this important topic." This invaluable text will provide graduate students in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Physics, and researchers in the field of ad hoc networking with a single reference resource on topology control. Professionals in wireless telecoms and networking system developers will also find it an indispensable guide.

Meet the Author

Paolo Santi is Researcher at the Instituto di Informatica e Telematica del CNR in Pisa, Italy, a position he has held since 2001. He received the 'Laurea' Degree and the PhD in Computer Science from the University of Pisa in 1994 and 2000. respectively. During his career, he visited the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, in 2001, and the Department of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University, in 2003.

During his PhD Studies, Dr. Santi's research activity focused on fault-tolerant computing in multiprocessor systems. Starting from 2001, his research interests shifted to wireless ad hoc networking, with particular focus on the investigation of fundamental network properties such as connectivity, network lifetime, and mobility modeling, and on the design of energy-efficient protocols.

Dr. Santi has contributed more than twenty papers in the field of wireless ad hoc and sensor networking, and has been involved in the organizational and technical committee of several conferences in the field. Dr. Santi is a member of ACM and SIGMOBILE.
