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.
