Geometry, Connectivity, and Broadcast Transport Capacity of Random Networks With Fading
In ad hoc networks with random node distribution, the underlying point process model and the channel fading process are usually considered separately. The authors provide a unified framework for the geometric characterization of fading by incorporating the fading process into the point process model. Concretely, assuming nodes are distributed in a stationary Poisson point process in Rd, they analyze the properties of the point processes that describe the path loss with fading. Applications include connectivity and broadcasting.
