Abstract

Given a wireless network that uses a certain, possibly complex strategy to manage the transmission of flows among its users, our goal is to understand its behavior by studying a fluid approximation. The validity and ease of working with a fluid model, instead of the original system is demonstrated by reviewing such models for different allocation strategies in both the single-hop and multi-hop setting. Simulation results in a simple case show that the approximate model successfully captures the behavior of the original system reasonably well.
