Transmission capacity of ad hoc networks with spatial diversity
TLDR
This paper derives the outage probability and transmission capacity of ad hoc wireless networks with nodes employing multiple antenna diversity techniques, for a general class of signal distributions with path loss exponent alpha > 2. Expand

A primer on spatial modeling and analysis in wireless networks
TLDR
The performance of wireless networks depends critically on their spatial configuration, because received signal power and interference depend critically on the distances between numerous transmitters and receivers. Expand

The Effect of Fading, Channel Inversion, and Threshold Scheduling on Ad Hoc Networks
TLDR
This paper addresses three issues in the field of ad hoc network capacity: the impact of channel fading, (ii) channel inversion power control, and (iii) threshold-based scheduling on capacity. Expand

Multi-Antenna Communication in Ad Hoc Networks: Achieving MIMO Gains with SIMO Transmission
TLDR
The benefit of multi-antenna receivers is investigated in wireless ad hoc networks, and the main finding is that network throughput can be made to scale linearly with the number of receive antennas in conjunction with linear processing. Expand

On Cooperative Relaying Schemes for Wireless Physical Layer Security
TLDR
We consider a cooperative wireless network in the presence of one or more eavesdroppers, and exploit node cooperation for achieving physical (PHY) layer based security. Expand

An Overview of the Transmission Capacity of Wireless Networks
TLDR
This paper surveys and unifies a number of recent contributions that have collectively developed a metric for decentralized wireless network analysis known as transmission capacity, which allows for quantification of achievable single-hop rates by focusing on a simplified physical/MAC-layer model.

Random access transport capacity
TLDR
We develop a new metric for quantifying end-to-end throughput in multihop wireless networks that is computable in closed-form in terms of key network parameters when the number of retransmissions is not restricted and the hops are assumed to be equally spaced on a line between the source and destination.

Rethinking MIMO for Wireless Networks: Linear Throughput Increases with Multiple Receive Antennas
TLDR
The benefit of multiple antenna communication is investigated in wireless ad hoc networks and the primary finding is that throughput can be made to scale linearly with the number of receive antennas even if each transmitting node uses only a single antenna. Expand
