General Capacity Scaling of Wireless Networks
Source: Illinois Institute of Technology
The authors focus on the issue of capacity scaling laws for wireless networks that is initiated by Gupta and Kumar. Most of the existing results differ from each other because of the diversity of analytical models and assumptions to be used. In terms of scaling patterns, there are two typical models adopted by many existing works: Random Extended Network (REN), where the node density is fixed to a constant, and Random Dense Network (RDN), where the node density increases linearly with the number of nodes.
