Correlated Equilibrium in Access Control for Wireless Communications
We study a finite population of mobiles communicating using the slotted ALOHA-type protocol. Our objective is the study of coordination between the mobiles in both cooperative as well as non-cooperative scenarios. Our study is based on the correlated equilibrium concept, a notion introduced by Aumann that broadens the Nash equilibrium. We study ways in which signaling can improve the performance both in the cooperative as well as in the non-cooperative cases, even in the absence of any extra information being conveyed through these signals.
