    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


    Self-configuring, hierarchical, ad hoc, wireless networks are fast becoming the focus of research for spectral efficiency and energy efficiency reasons. Such networks can be considered as graphs where a node represents a transceiving unit and an edge represents a communication link between two nodes. In order to probabilistically analyse connectedness issues in such graphs, the concept of the star-node is introduced here, where a star-node is a node whose path loss to multiple nodes in its vicinity falls below a given threshold, i.e., it is capable of sustaining "healthy" communication links to multiple neighbours.
