This is the abstract of my paper which accepted and published at Journal of Network and Computer Applications,Vol 97, pp. 1-10. 2017. DOI: 10.1016/j.jnca.2017.08.007.

Route optimization is one of important feature in wireless sensor networks in order to enhancing the life time of WSNs. Since Centrality is one of the greatest challenges in computing and estimating the important node metrics of a structural graph, it is necessary to calculate and determine the importance of a node in a network. This paper proposes an alternative way to optimizing the route problems which is based on multi-constrained optimal path (MCOP) and operator calculus approach. A novel routing protocol called Path Operator Calculus Centrality (POCC) is proposed as a new method to determine the main path which contains high centrality nodes in a wireless sensor network deployment. The estimation of centrality is using the operator calculus approach based on network topology which provides optimal paths for each source node to base station. Some constraints such as energy level and bit error rate (BER) of node are considered to define the path centrality in this approach. The simulation evaluation shows improved performance in terms of energy consumption and network lifetime.
