Considering n nodes performing random access using ALOHA with s slots, we study the probability that there occurs a non-colliding message in the first non-empty slot. If each node transmits with probability p in each slot and the number of slots is sufficiently large, a non-colliding first message occurs with probability Phi = 1-np/2 for large n and small… CONTINUE READING
