In this thesis, we propose two novel algorithms, a lightweight distributed hash table (DHT) lookup algorithm and a multicast tree building algorithm, specifically designed to take advantages of the major characteristics of mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) like broadcast communication, limited resources (particularly energy) physical proximity or multi-hop communication that are often put aside or...
