Abstract: Face routing is a simple method for routing in wireless ad-hoc networks. It only uses location information about nodes to do routing and it provably guarantees message delivery in static connected plane graphs. However, a static connected plane graph is often difficult to obtain in a real wireless network. This thesis extends face routing to more realistic models of wireless ad-hoc networks. We present a new version of face routing that generalizes and simplifies previous face routing protocols and develop techniques to apply face routing directly on general, non-planar network graphs. We also develop techniques for face routing to deal with changes to the graph that occur during routing. Using these techniques, we create a collection of face routing protocols for a series of increasingly more general graph models and prove the correctness of these protocols.
