This course will cover distributed algorithms for mobile (and some non-mobile) wireless ad hoc networks, including those with interesting interactions with the real world. We will focus on algorithms that can be described precisely, and that have relatively well-defined correctness, fault-tolerance, and performance requirements. Our aim is to understand the existing theory of wireless network algorithms and contribute to its further development.

Thus, we would like to:
