Talk Abstract: Wireless will be the dominant mode of internet access for end users in near future. WiFi and WiMax standards attempt to provide broadband wireless access. However, bandwidth limitations of the wireless channel, interference from multiple users operating in the same band and channel variations due to fading become bottlenecks for typical multimedia applications that require high bandwidth and an error resilient communication medium. Cooperative networking, by enabling wireless terminals to assist each other in transmitting information to their desired destinations, provides a promising technology for improving the performance of wireless networks.
