Summary
The incredible growth in the capabilities and functionality of mobile devices has enabled new applications and
network architectures to emerge. Due to the potential for node mobility, along with significant node heterogeneity,
characteristics such as very large delays, intermittent links, and high link error rates pose a new set of network
challenges. Along with these challenges, end-to-end paths are assumed not to exist and message relay approaches
are often adopted. While message flooding is a simple and robust solution for such cases, its cost in terms of
network resource consumption is unaffordable. In this paper, we focus on the evaluation of different controlled
message flooding schemes over disconnected sparse mobile networks. We study the effect of these schemes on
message delay, network resource consumption, and neighbor discovery overhead. Our simulations show that our
