# POC - Path Operator Calculus

#### Definition

This measure proposes an alternative solution to route
optimization problems by using the multi-constrained optimal
path (MCOP) approach. A new metric called path operator
calculus (POC) is proposed as an alternative way to determine
nodes with high centrality in wireless sensor network deployment.
The estimation of this new metric is based on network topology
by using the operator calculus approach, which produces the
feasible paths for each node to the sink node. In order to
define the path centrality of the network, the proposed approach
takes into account two constraints for each node: energy and bit
error rate (BER).
