Distributed wireless networking with an enhanced physical-link layer interface
This thesis focuses on the cross-layer design of physical and data link layers to support efficient distributed wireless networking. At the physical layer, distributed coding theorems are proposed to prepare each transmitter with an ensemble of channel codes. In a time slot, a transmitter chooses a code to encode its messages and such a choice is not shared with other transmitters or with the receiver. The receiver guarantees either reliable message decoding or reliable collision report depending on whether a predetermined reliability threshold can be met. Under the assumption that the codeword ...
