Applying branching processes to delay-tolerant networks

Dieter Fiems UGent and Eitan Altman (2009) LECTURE NOTES OF THE INSTITUTE FOR COMPUTER SCIENCE, SOCIAL INFORMATICS AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS ENGINEERING. 39. p.117-125
abstract
Mobility models that have been used in the past to study delay tolerant networks (DTNs) have been either too complex to allow for deriving analytical expressions for performance measures, or have been too simplistic. In this paper we identify several classes of DTNs where the dynamics of the number of nodes that have a copy of some packet can be modeled as branching process with migration. Using recent results on such processes in a random environment, we obtain explicit formulae for the first two moments of the number of copies of a file that is propagated in the DTN, for quite general mobility models. Numerical examples illustrate our approach.
