—In a multi-hop wireless sensor network (WSN), the traffic load is not evenly distributed over the nodes. For example, the sensors which are one hop away from the sink relay the whole network traffic. This imbalanced traffic distribution can degrade the network lifetime and functionality. Here, an analysis is proposed to characterize the traffic load(More)
—Considering event-driven clustered wireless sensor networks, a probabilistic approach for analyzing the network lifetime is presented when events occur randomly over the network field. To this end, we first model the packet transmission rate of the sensors, using the theory of coverage processes and Voronoi tessellation. Then, the probability of achieving(More)
Wireless sensor networks are widely used in security monitoring applications to sense and report specific activities in a field. In path coverage, for example, the network is in charge of monitoring a path and discovering any intruder trying to cross it. In this paper, we investigate the path coverage properties of a randomly deployed wireless sensor(More)
Considering a symmetric Gaussian multi-way relay channel (MWRC) with K users, this work compares two transmission strategies, namely one-way relaying (OWR) and multi-way relaying (MWR), in terms of their achievable rates. While in OWR, only one user acts as data source at each time and transmits in the uplink channel access, users can make simultaneous(More)
—Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels have been studied from various aspects including the average of the mutual information between the transmitter and receiver (er-godic capacity) when the channel gains are known to the receiver only. A common approach for capacity analysis is to find the moment generating function (MGF) of the mutual(More)
