Performance of Convolutionally Coded Underwater Acoustic Ad-Hoc Networks

Author(s) : ANDREJ STEFANOV
Abstract: The paper considers the performance of underwater acoustic ad-hoc networks. A uniform distribution of nodes over a finite area is assumed. The node-to-node channel is modeled through the Ricean fading model. The paper adopts a communication theoretic approach and studies the impact of point-to-...     Read More
