Limitations of trust management schemes in VANET and countermeasures
Vehicular networks ensure that the information received from any vehicle is promptly and correctly propagated to nearby vehicles, to prevent accidents. A crucial point is how to trust the information transmitted, when the ...
Information theory perspective on network robustness
(Elsevier Science, 2016-01)
A crucial challenge in network theory is the study of the robustness of a network when facing a sequence of failures. In this work, we propose a dynamical definition of network robustness based on Information Theory, that ...
Human-centric wireless sensor networks to improve information availability during urban search and rescue activities
When a natural disaster hits an urban area, the first 72 h after are the most critical. After that period the probability of finding survivors falls dramatically, therefore the search and rescue activities in that area must ...
D-ARM: A new proposal for multi-dimensional interconnection networks
(Assoc Computing MachineryNew YorkEUA, 2001)
A social network approach to trust management in VANETs
In the past few years, vehicular ad hoc networks(VANETs) was studied extensively by researchers. VANETs is a type of P2P network, though it has some distinct characters (fast moving, short lived connection etc.). In this ...
ACTIVE NETWORKS THAT MAXIMIZE THE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION TRANSMISSION
(WORLD SCIENTIFIC PUBL CO PTE LTDSINGAPORE, 2012)
This work clarifies the relationship between network circuit (topology) and behavior (information transmission and synchronization) in active networks, e. g. neural networks. As an application, we show how to determine a ...
A fast electric load forecasting using adaptive neural networks
This work presents a procedure for electric load forecasting based on adaptive multilayer feedforward neural networks trained by the Backpropagation algorithm. The neural network architecture is formulated by two parameters, ...
Social networks on the Internet: a practical investigation about file sharing on Facebook
The social networks on the internet have experienced rapid growth and joined millions of users in Brazil and throughout the world. Such networks allow groups of people to communicate and exchange information. Sharing ...
