	  abstract     = {Connected dominating set (CDS) problem in unit disk
graph has signi£cant impact on an ef£cient design of routing protocols
in wireless sensor networks, where the searching space for a
route is reduced to nodes in the set. A set is dominating if all the
nodes in the system are either in the set or neighbors of nodes in the
set. In this paper, a simple and ef£cient heuristic method is proposed
for £nding a minimum connected dominating set (MCDS) in ad hoc
wireless networks based on the new parameter support of vertices.
With this parameter the proposed heuristic approach effectively
£nds the MCDS of a graph. Extensive computational experiments
show that the proposed approach outperforms the recently proposed
heuristics found in the literature for the MCD},
