Abstract:
We present a new transmission control strategy for local-area networks in which each station dynamically estimates the probability that r stations are ready to transmit a packet, for each nonnegative integer r. A station then transmits a packet with a probability based on these estimates. Each station updates its estimates using Bayes' Rule after observing whether the current time slot contained a collision, a successful transmission, or a hole (an empty slot). This strategy we call Bayesian Broadcast.
