Efficient data propagation across the mobile nodes is an essential concern in wireless networks. Broadcasting with Minimum Connected Dominating Set (MCDS) is used to reduce redundant transmission. Contention occurs when a group of nodes want to transmit over a shared channel at the same time. During contention, nodes defer transmissions for a random time. Using Contention-aware Connected Dominating Set (CACDS) to minimize contention is a new concept. We study computationally (using CPLEX) Integer Programming for MCDS and CACDS and use Benders Decomposition to solve the problem. To find a connected dominating set, we use one state-of-art approach based on the shortest path algorithm, and ours one is based on the number of connected components.We propose IP formulation of selection forwarding-nodes based on Dominant Pruning and Contention-aware Dominant Pruning. The result shows that our approach performs better than the state-of-art approach in large networks. CACDS results better in minimizing contention.
