The main objective of EPAR is to minimize the variance in the remaining energies of all the nodes and there by prolong the network lifetime.
For EPAR, however, the path is chosen based on energy.
Using a mini-max formulation EPAR selects the routing path.
EPAR achieve minimum variance in energy levels of different nodes in the network and maximizes the network lifetime.
4 shows that the EPAR,DSR protocol becomes inefficient when the network consists of more than 200 traffic size for low density network while for high density network becomes inefficient when the network consist more than 1000 sources.
On the other hand the throughput of ZRP increases rapidly when the nodes exceeds 70 with 95% efficiency than EPAR, MTPR and DSR.
This instrument was developed for cross-cultural comparisons of retiring/retired athletes and it was used in the EPAR.
Placing the present research within the EPAR Project we will begin the discussion of our results by highlighting the findings that are common throughout the studies of the same project with samples from France and Sweden (Stambulova et al.
Considering this work in relation to the findings of the other studies in the EPAR Project (Alfermann et al.
Considering their emotional reactions in relation with the corresponding scores reported in the other EPAR studies, Greek and Spanish elite athletes appeared to have experienced more negative emotions upon retirement, but still the negative emotions could be described as moderate.
What is more, by placing the study within the EPAR Project we decided to maintain the same theoretical framework, design, and methodology in order to make our results comparable to those of the other EPAR studies.
With regard to the cross-cultural pattern, proposed by previous studies of the EPAR Project (Stambulova & Alfermann, 2009) and strengthened by our findings, we emphasize the perceived lack of support from organizations that most athletes reported in all the studied countries.
