Performance Analysis of Millimeter Wave Ad Hoc Networks

Ad hoc networks provide a flexible, infrastructure-free means to communicate between soldiers in war zones, aid workers in disaster areas, or consumers in device-to-device (D2D) applications. Ad hoc networks, however, are still plagued by interference caused by uncoordinated transmissions which leads to poor scaling due to distributed coordination. Communication with millimeter-wave (mmWave) devices offers hope to 
ad hoc networks through higher bandwidth, reduced interference due to directional antennas, and weaker interference power due to building blockage.
