Abstract : This Semi-Annual Technical Report covers research covering the period from October 1, 1982 to March 31, 1983. This contract has three primary designated research areas: packet radio systems, resource sharing and allocation, and distributed processing and control. This report contains abstracts of publications which summarize research results in these areas followed by the main body of the report which is devoted to a treatment of single- and multi-hop packet radio systems. In particular, the main body consists of a Ph.D. dissertation, Analysis of Throughput and Delay for Single- and Multi-Hop Packet Radio Networks. The work presents a new approach to evaluating the performance of multi-hop packet radio networks, namely, a study of the times between successful transmissions. Also studied is the behavior of packets in a multi-hop system when a fixed transmission radius is specified and this radius is then optimized for throughput. A Markov chain model is also introduced and solved numerically to evaluate transmission and flow control strategies in these systems.
