Decentralised learning MACs for collision-free access in WLANs
TLDR
We introduce learning algorithms that can substantially speed up convergence to collision free operation; (2) developing a decentralised schedule length adaptation scheme that provides long-run fair (uniform) access to the medium while maintaining collision-free access for arbitrary numbers of stations.

Aggregation With Fragment Retransmission for Very High-Speed WLANs
TLDR
We identify fundamental properties that must be satisfied by any CSMA-/CA-based MAC layers and develop a novel scheme called aggregation with fragment retransmission (AFR) that exhibits these properties. Expand
