Özet

Concepts such as energy dependence, random deployment, dynamic topological update, self-organization, varying large number of nodes are among many factors that make WSNs a type of complex system. However, when analyzing WSNs properties using complex network tools, classical topological measures must be considered with care as they might not be applicable in their original form. In this work, we focus on the topological measures frequently used in the related field of Internet topological analysis. We illustrate their applicability to the WSNs domain through simulation experiments. In the cases when the classic metrics turn out to be incompatible, we propose some alternative measures and discuss them based on the WSNs characteristics. (C) 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
