We are interested in characterizing the performance of decentralized multiple-access and retransmission schemes for multi-hop wireless networks with the goal of drawing conclusions on cross-layer design. We assume that nodes are randomly distributed on the plane according to a homogeneous spatial Poisson process. We investigate different transmission strategies in order to assess the tradeoff between spatial density of communication and the range of each transmission. The results of this work also show that coding and retransmission provide means of reliable communication coupled with a completely decentralized multiple-access strategy.
