A unifying perspective on the capacity of wireless ad hoc networks
We present the first unified modeling framework for the computation of the throughput capacity of random wireless ad hoc networks in which information is disseminated by means of unicast routing, multicast routing, broadcasting, or different forms of anycasting. We introduce (n,m,k)-casting as a generalization of all forms of one-to-one, one-to-many and many-to-many information dissemination in wireless networks. In this context, n, m, and k denote the total number of nodes in the network, the number of destinations for each communication group, and the actual number of communication-group members that receive information (i.e., k ≤ m), respectively.
