This paper records the process and results of this PhD work on applying geometric routing to Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). WMNs are the multi-hop networks that serve as the backbones for connecting the wireless LANs in a municipal or enterprise area. The nodes (so called mesh routers) in WMNs communicate with each other by wireless links and form a mesh topology. Today the WMNs typically equip multiple radios at a node and use multiple nonoverlapping channels to communicate, so as to increase bandwidth and reduce interference. Accordingly, this paper focuses on such type of WMNs, which is called 'Multi-radio and multichannel WMNs' in the literature.
