    Distributed Coalition Formation Games for SecureWireless Transmission

    Cooperation among wireless nodes has been recently proposed for improving the PHYsical layer (PHY) security of wireless transmission in the presence of multiple eavesdroppers. While existing PHY security literature answered the question "What are the link-level secrecy rate gains from cooperation?", this paper attempts to answer the question of "How...

    Performance Analysis of Gateway Load Balancing in Ad Hoc Networks With Random Topologies

    In wireless multihop networks such as MANETs or Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN), an Internet GateWay (IGW) is a node that provides Internet connectivity, linking the wireless network with the global Internet. Congestion around the IGW represents a potential bottleneck for all Internet traffic that has to pass through the IGW....
