In this paper we evaluate the performance of Adjusted Probabilistic flooding by comparing it to “blind” flooding as used with the Ad Hoc on Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol as well as a fixed probabilistic approach. The results show that the Adjusted Probabilistic flooding exhibits superior performance in terms of both reachability and saved rebroadcasts.</ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
