Research Area:  Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Mutual exclusion among the nodes waiting for critical resources is considered as one of the major area of research in MANET. Mutual Exclusion allows mobile nodes to share resources among them. Formation of quorum is required for delivery of data with common intermediate node in between them. While communication, data transmission between quorums, is carried out using an arbitrator that is common to both regions. The main function of arbitrator is to grant the permission to incoming requests so as to enter the CS, by forwarding incoming requests to node, that is having the the primary token, which in turn will reduce the response time, synchronization delay and message complexity.
