Robust Monte Carlo Localization for Mobile Robots
, 2001
"... Mobile robot localization is the problem of determining a robot's pose from sensor data. This article presents a family of probabilistic localization algorithms known as Monte Carlo Localization (MCL). MCL algorithms represent a robot's belief by a set of weighted hypotheses (samples), whi ..."

), which approximate the posterior under a common Bayesian formulation of the localization problem. Building on the basic MCL algorithm, this article develops a more robust algorithm called MixtureMCL, which integrates two complimentary ways of generating samples in the estimation. To apply this algorithm
A HighThroughput Path Metric for MultiHop Wireless Routing
, 2003
"... This paper presents the expected transmission count metric (ETX), which finds highthroughput paths on multihop wireless networks. ETX minimizes the expected total number of packet transmissions (including retransmissions) required to successfully deliver a packet to the ultimate destination. The E ..."

On the robust shortest path problem
 Computers and Operations Research
, 1998
"... The shortest path (SP) problem in a network with nonnegative arc lengths can be solved easily by Dijkstra’s labeling algorithm in polynomial time. In the case of significant uncertainty of the arc lengths, a robustness approach is more appropriate. In this paper, we study the SP problem under arc le ..."

A new approach to the maximum flow problem
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM
, 1988
"... All previously known efficient maximumflow algorithms work by finding augmenting paths, either one path at a time (as in the original Ford and Fulkerson algorithm) or all shortestlength augmenting paths at once (using the layered network approach of Dinic). An alternative method based on the pre ..."

Probabilistic Roadmaps for Path Planning in HighDimensional Configuration Spaces
 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION
, 1996
"... A new motion planning method for robots in static workspaces is presented. This method proceeds in two phases: a learning phase and a query phase. In the learning phase, a probabilistic roadmap is constructed and stored as a graph whose nodes correspond to collisionfree configurations and whose edg ..."

edges correspond to feasible paths between these configurations. These paths are computed using a simple and fast local planner. In the query phase, any given start and goal configurations of the robot are connected to two nodes of the roadmap; the roadmap is then searched for a path joining these two
Network Coding for Large Scale Content Distribution
"... We propose a new scheme for content distribution of large files that is based on network coding. With network coding, each node of the distribution network is able to generate and transmit encoded blocks of information. The randomization introduced by the coding process eases the scheduling of bloc ..."

Grid Information Services for Distributed Resource Sharing
, 2001
"... Grid technologies enable largescale sharing of resources within formal or informal consortia of individuals and/or institutions: what are sometimes called virtual organizations. In these settings, the discovery, characterization, and monitoring of resources, services, and computations are challengi ..."

are challenging problems due to the considerable diversity, large numbers, dynamic behavior, and geographical distribution of the entities in which a user might be interested. Consequently, information services are a vital part of any Grid software infrastructure, providing fundamental mechanisms for discovery
Powerlaw distributions in empirical data

Robust Distributed Network Localization with Noisy Range Measurements
