Executive Summary

This paper addresses the throughput maximization problem in wireless mesh networks. For the case of cooperative access points, the authors present a negotiation-based throughput maximization algorithm which adjusts the operating channel and power level among access points automatically, from a game-theoretical perspective. They show that this algorithm converges to the optimal channel and power assignment which yields the maximum overall throughput with arbitrarily high probability. Moreover, they analyze the scenario where access points belong to different regulation entities and hence non-cooperative.
