An Empirical Study on the Connectivity of Ad Hoc Networks
This paper discusses the probability of connectivity of ad hoc networks. An empirical formula is proposed to fit the simulation results. The parameters of the formula are determined for different cases and the asymptotic behavior is discussed. Finally, a new metric is proposed to quantify the connectivity of an ad hoc network.
