Abstract We propose a representation of wireless
workload patterns as large, sparse matrices and provide
a method for stochastically generating experimental
workloads from a given matrix. The essential prop-
erty of the algebraic representation is that the sum-
mation of vectors naturally yields a faithful description
of the aggregate behavior of the corresponding flows.
This deceptively simple property allows us to express
many common concepts from traffic modeling suc-
cinctly in terms of a few linear transformations. The
algebraic representation has many benefits: (1) it makes
the meaning of generally understood but vague con-
