In this paper, the authors studied the impact of the size of the deployment region on the asymptotic unicast and multicast throughput capacity for wireless networks under Gaussian channel model. They derived asymptotic matching upper-bounds and lower-bounds of unicast capacity for arbitrary and random wireless networks in different cases. Their upper-bounds improve the previous result and uses new analyzing techniques. A number of interesting and challenging questions remain as future work. The first question is to close the gap on multicast capacity by presenting possibly new tight upper-bounds and designing algorithms to achieve the asymptotic multicast capacity.
