Makowski Receives NSF Grant for Modeling Wireless Networks

Professor Armand Makowski (ECE/ISR) is the principal investigator for a three-year NSF grant for "Modeling Wireless Networks: Excursions in the Theory of Random Graphs."

Research will focus on three classes of random graph models: random connection graphs, random intersection graphs and a combination thereof known as Kryptographs. Both the models and research questions are driven by applications from wireless networking and sensor network security:

– Modeling one-hop connectivity in mobile ad-hoc networks;

– Modeling random key pre-distribution; and

– Achieving secure connectivity in wireless sensor networks via random key management.

Integrating geometric and non-geometric features will lead to new and challenging problems. The overall objective of this research is to develop the theoretical foundations to assess system performance and help dimension attending resources in wireless networks.
