Unique book addressing cooperative algorithms at the MAC layer

Cooperative Communications: MAC Protocols focuses on issues pertaining to the MAC layer of wireless cooperative communication networks, offering a rigorous taxonomy of this dispersed field, along with a range of application scenarios for cooperative and distributed schemes to show how these techniques can be employed. The authors provide rigorous analytical tools for reservation and contention based MACs, as well as hybrids. This is complemented by an application of developed techniques to specific wireless standards. There is currently no book on the market which coherently discusses cooperative algorithms at the MAC layer.

  • Introduces background, concepts, applications, milestones and thorough taxonomy of the field, along with a range of application scenarios
  • Identifies the potential in this emerging technology applied to e.g. LTE/WiMAX, WSN
  • Explores reservation-based, contention-based and hybrid cooperative MAC protocols, and applies rigorous mathematical tools to these
  • Demonstrates cross-layer design to boost performance
  • Addresses advanced MAC topics, such as opportunistic and network coded MACs
  • Highlights future research challenges within the cooperative communications
  • Includes an accompanying website (
