Abstract: Multi cast communication is a key technology for wireless mesh networks. Multicast provides efficient data distribution among a group of nodes, Generally sensor networks and MANETs uses multicast algorithms which are designed to be energy efficient and to achieve optimal route discovery among mobile nodes whereas wireless mesh networks needs to maximize throughput. Here we propose two multicast algorithms: The Level Channel Assignment (LCA) algorithm and the Multi-Channel Multicast (MCM) algorithm to improve the throughput for multichannel sand multi interface mesh networks. The algorithm builds efficient multicast trees by minimizing the number of relay nodes and total hop count distance of the trees. Shortest path computation is a classical combinatorial optimization problem. Neural networks have been used for processing path optimization problem. Pulse Coupled Neural Networks (PCNNS) suffer from high computational cast for very long paths we propose a new PCNN modal called dual source PCNN (DSPCNN) which can improve the computational efficiency two auto waves are produced by DSPCNN one comes from source neuron and other from goal neuron when the auto waves from these two sources meet the DSPCNN stops and then the shortest path is found by backtracking the two auto waves.
