In the authors' attempts to model, characterize and control increasingly complex network systems they introduced a novel physics framework in which communication networks are modeled as physical systems that react to local forces exerted on network nodes. They showed that under clear atmosphere conditions the network communication energy can be modeled as the potential energy of an analogous spring system, which led to the development of distributed mobility control algorithms where nodes react to local forces exerted by neighbor nodes driving the network to energy minimizing configurations. This paper extends their previous work by including the effects of atmospheric attenuation in the channel.
