    Ad-hoc networks, fundamental properties and network topologies provides an original graph theoretical approach to the fundamental properties of wireless mobile ad-hoc networks. THis approach is comined with a realistic radio model for physical links between nodes to produce new insights into network charcterististics like connectivity, degree distribution, hopcount, interference and capacity. This book clearly demonstrates how the Medium Access Control protocols impose a limit on the level of intereference in ad-hoc networks. It has been shown that interference is upper bounded, and a new accurate method for the estimation of inetereference power statistics in ad-hoc and sensor networks is intyroduces here. Furthermore, this volume shows how multi-hop traffic affects the capacity of the network. In multi-hop and ad-hoc networks there is a trade-off between the network size and the maximum input bit rate possible per node. Large ad-hoc or sensor networks, consisting of thousands of nodes, can only support low bit-rate applications. This work provides vaulable directives for designing ad-hoc networks and sensor networks. It will only be of interest to the academic community, but also to the engineers who roll out ad-hoc and sensor networks in practice.
