Executive Summary

So far, many researches on network coding are performed with higher layer protocols such as MAC, routing, and flow control protocols without consideration of physical layer issues such as channel conditions of links. However, in wireless networks, the consideration of properties at the physical layer is important to improve system performance. Hence, in this paper, the authors study an opportunistic scheduling and adaptive modulation problem for wireless networks with network coding, which is a joint problem for MAC and physical layers. A similar problem was studied in considering an idealized system in which the data rate of each link is modeled with the Shannon capacity.
