To determine the capacity of distributed wireless networks (i.e., ad hoc networks); the random access transport capacity was proposed as the average maximum rate of successful end-to-end transmission in the distance. In this paper, the authors consider the random access transport capacity for multi-hop relaying to find the end-to-end throughput of a wireless ad hoc network, where each node relays the signal using an Amplify-and-Forward (AF) strategy. In particular, they analyze the exact outage probability for multi-hop AF relaying in the presence of both co-channel interference and thermal noise, where interferers are spatially distributed following a Poisson distribution.
