Multi-Hop Wireless Networks (MHWN) are essential for ubiquitous computation and communication. Currently there are many experimental setups of multi-hop wireless networks around the world. The authors consider the problem of joint routing, scheduling and power control in a multi-hop wireless network when the nodes have multiple antennas. They present an iterative scheme to compute achievable rates in the interference environment of the network using SINR model. The solution methods have a high computational complexity. Thus, they also provide an efficient low complexity sub-optimal solution. They show that the multiple antennas provide linear gain in system throughput.
