Executive Summary

This paper tries to reconcile the tension between physical model and protocol model that have been used to characterize interference relationship in a multi-hop wireless net-work. The physical model (a.k.a. SINR model) is widely considered as a reference model for physical layer behavior but its application in multi-hop wireless networks is limited by its complexity. On the other hand, the protocol model (a.k.a. unified disk graph model) is simple but there have been doubts on its validity.
