Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We explore applications of quorum systems to the problem of tracking locations of mobile users in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). The location tracking system uses biquorum systems, a generalization of traditional quorum systems. We performed extensive simulations of the location tracking system. The simulation results show that our strict biquorum implementation has better performance than the traditional strict quorum implementations. Moreover, our results show that randomized dynamic quorum implementations have better overall performance than strict (bi)quorum implementations.
