Biologically inspired networking and sensing; algorithms and architectures.


Biologically inspired networking and sensing; algorithms and architectures.

Ed. by Pietro Lio and Dinesh Verma.

Medical Information Science Reference


297 pages




Lio (U. of Cambridge) and Verma (IBM) gather 13 papers exploring new architectures, resource optimization techniques, and routing protocols for computer networks that are based on biological mechanisms and natural phenomena. The contributing researchers demonstrate the potential of a dendritic cell algorithm for addressing intrusion detection problems, describe an organic network control system for adapting network protocols to dynamically changing environments, and compare three neural networks for cognitive modeling. Other topics include TCP congestion control, network energy driven wireless sensor networks, genetic algorithms for delay and disruption tolerant networks, and a scented node protocol for MANET routing.
