Description - Ad Hoc Wireless Networks by Ozan K. Tonguz
Ad hoc networking is currently a very hot topic in wireless communications due to the multitude of potential applications both civilian and military, such as military ad hoc wireless networks, environmental sensor networks, car-based ad hoc networks, biomedical networks and many more. The majority of studies carried out and books available on this exciting new area look at the technology from a 'top down' perspective, focusing on the higher layers of the protocol stack. This book adopts a different approach and looks at the technology from a 'bottom up' angle. Through studying the physical layer in detail, it shows that in such networks the coupling and interaction between the physical layer, Medium Access Control (MAC) layer, network layer and applications is significant. Topics in the book range from the basic principles of networking and communication systems through to applications making it ideal for practicing and R&D engineers in the wireless communications and networking industries looking to understand this new area.
The inclusion of problems and solutions at the end of each chapter furthers understanding and makes it a highly relevant text to post-graduate and senior undergraduates on communication systems and computer science courses.
