Abstract--We consider multicast transmissions in a
wireless ad hoc network where nodes randomly compete
for access to a shared channel. Our goal is in optimizing
a weighted proportional fairness objective of the network
throughput. We consider two different forms of multicast:
non-guaranteed and guaranteed. In both cases, we char-
acterize the multicast throughput and provide schemes to
compute the optimal channel access probabilities.
