Angle Preserving and Area Preserving Maps for Wireless Sensor Networks

In this talk I will review the work we have done in the past five years using continuous maps for problems in wireless sensor networks. The talk will cover three topics: 1) using angle preserving maps for efficient greedy routing with quality guarantee; 2) the limitation of random walk for source anonymization; 3) using area preserving maps for load balanced routing. All three topics are centered around the theme of connecting sensor network geometry to fundamental networks operations.
