About the Book

Two capacity metrics for random wireless networks, namely, the transmission and the throughput capacity, that have been defined to capture the successful number of bits that can be transported across the network. We present a comprehensive analysis of transmission capacity and throughput capacity of random wireless networks. In addition, using the tools from percolation theory, we also discuss the connectivity and percolation properties of random wireless networks, that impact the routing, and large-scale connectivity in wireless networks. The book is targeted at graduate students looking for an easy and rigorous introduction to the area of information/communication theory of random wireless networks.
