The consideration of energy consumption in wireless ad hoc networks prevents the problem of the network exhausting batteries, thus partitioning the entire network. Power-aware multicasting is proposed to reduce the power consumption. This letter presents an energy-efficient genetic algorithm mechanism to resolve quality of service (QoS) multicast routing problem, which is NP-complete. The proposed genetic algorithm depends on bounded end-to-end delay and minimum energy cost of the multicast tree. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm is effective and efficient.
