Abstract
The evolution of wireless devices along with the increase
in user mobility have created new challenges such as net-
work partitioning and intermittent connectivity. These new
challenges have become apparent in many situations where
the transmission of critical data is of high priority. Disaster
rescue groups, for example, are equipped with numerous de-
vices which constantly gather and transmit various forms of
data. The challenge of establishing communication between
groups of this type has led to an evolutionary form of net-
works which we consider in this paper, namely, Delay Tol-
erant Mobile Networks (DTMNs). Nodes in DTMNs usually
form clusters that we define as regions. Nodes within each
region have end-to-end paths between them. Both regions,
as well as nodes within a region, can be either stationary
