Wireless MAC Protocol based on Crowd-Anticrowd Theory

Published in Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.
In the domain of wireless networking, there have been several attempts to design, and analyze resource allocation problems using Game theoretic techniques (such as, random access game for contention control). In the current paper, a Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol based on Minority Game(MG) theory is proposed for channel supporting Multipacket Reception (MPR). Several performance metrics of the protocol (like, mean of Attendance, Volatility, System Throughput and Energy Expenditure) are studied through extensive simulation. The behaviour of the protocol is also analyzed from the perspective of Crowd-Anticrowd Theory, a popular tool from econophysics literature. © 2020 IEEE.
