Abstract. It has been long recognized that the interference among con-
current wireless transmissions plays a crucial role in limiting the perfor-
mance of wireless networks. Recently, studies indicate that equipping
nodes with multiple radios and operating these radios on multiple fre-
quency channels can greatly enhance the capacity of wireless networks.
On the other hand, to fully realize the benefits of multi-radio multi-
channel communication, one may need to design an efficient channel
assignment algorithm. In this paper, we study the channel assignment
problem by proposing an algorithm that achieves load balancing Nash
Equilibrium solution even in a selfish as well as topology-blind environ-
ment. Our simulation results also depict the effectiveness of the proposed
channel assignment solution.
1 Introduction
One of crucial challenges that affect the performance of wireless networks is
the presence of interference among multiple concurrent transmissions. With the
