Stochastic Modeling of Cooperative Multi-Hop Strip Networks With Fixed Hop Boundaries

In this paper, a strip-shaped cooperative multi-hop wireless network is modeled stochastically with quasi-stationary Markov chain. The network is considered to be a fixed boundary decode-and-forward Opportunistic Large Array (OLA), where each level is of the same size and contains the same number of nodes placed randomly. The state of the system is… (More)
