Abstract-- AHNs are wireless networks operating without the
benefits of network infrastructure (basestations) or centralized
control. AHNs working with limited spectrum perform best
when simultaneous transmissions are coordinated to avoid col-
lisions. Optimal transmission coordination is a combinatorial
optimization problem that is, in general, intractable for large
size networks, even with global information and central con-
trol. Constraints on simultaneous transmissions may arise from
both transceiver limitations (e.g., half-duplex designs) and from
requirements on the signal to interference ratio. We study the
transmission coordination optimization problem under a variety
of natural communication constraints. Our work identifies par-
ticular instances where the problem may be solved by greedy
algorithms, and studies the performance of several natural
heuristic solutions.
