Dynamic tuning of the IEEE 802.11 protocol to achieve a theoretical throughput limit
A distributed algorithm is proposed that enables each station to tune its backoff algorithm at run-time and indicates that the capacity of the enhanced protocol is very close to the theoretical upper bound in all the configurations analyzed.

A distributed mechanism for contention control in IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs, named asymptotically optimal backoff (AOB), dynamically adapts the backoff window size to the current network contention level and guarantees that an IEEE802.11 WLAN asymPTotically achieves its optimal channel utilization.
Mobile ad hoc networking: milestones, challenges, and new research directions
This article discusses the evolution of the multihop ad hoc networking paradigm by building on the lessons learned from the IETF MANET research, and analyzes four successful networking paradigms, mesh, sensor, opportunistic, and vehicular networks, that emerged from the MANET world as a more pragmatic application.
