  title={Stability and Distributed Power Control in MANETs with Per Hop Retransmissions},
  author={Anastasios Giovanidis and Sławomir Stańczak},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Communications},
In the current work the effects of hop-by-hop packet loss and retransmissions via ARQ protocols are investigated within a Mobile Ad-hoc NET-work (MANET). A success probability function is related to each link, which can be controlled by power and rate allocation. The expression for the network's stability region is initially derived where the success function plays a critical role. The investigation considers functions with specific properties which are shown to be satisfied for various…

Optimal control of transmission errors with power allocation and stability in ARQ downlink
In the current work a downlink scenario is studied where packets for each user are buffered at the base station waiting for service, and a power allocation that stabilizes the queues for all vectors within the aforementioned region is introduced.
Controlled random access MAC for network utility maximization in wireless networks
This paper presents a candidate random access MAC protocol that extends an existing algorithm to calculate the access probabilities, and modify the backpressure algorithm itself, by incorporating a minimum hop bias to alleviate the inherent problem of routing loops.
Optimal and Distributed Protocols for Cross-Layer Design of Physical and Transport Layers in MANETs
New convexity results surrounding the Shannon capacity formula are provided, allowing us to abandon suboptimal high-SIR approximations that have almost become entrenched in the literature and can be back-substituted into many existing problems for similar benefit.

A joint routing and power allocation policy is developed which stabilizes the system and provides bounded average delay guarantees whenever the input rates are within this capacity region.
Distributed Communication Control Mechanisms for Ad Hoc Networks
This work investigates distributed algorithms for joint admission control, rate and power allocation aiming at maximizing the individual or the global throughput defined as the average information rate successfully received.

This paper analyzes a single-user communication system composed of a transmitter preceded by a queue used for retransmissions, Gaussian block-fading channel, and a receiver, and the system average delay is optimized by using combined power/rate control under average power constraints.
Efficient power control via pricing in wireless data networks
This work introduces pricing of transmit powers in order to obtain Pareto improvement of the noncooperative power control game, i.e., to obtain improvements in user utilities relative to the case with no pricing.
Dynamic Retransmission Limit Scheme in MAC Layer for Routing in Multihop Ad hoc Networks
This paper focuses on drawing benefit from the interaction of the MAC and routing by defining a new cross-layer scheme for routing based on the limit number of retransmission and shows the efficiency of the scheme in case of multimedia applications with delay constraint.
