This paper studies the problem of selecting a maximum independent set of links with a fixed monotone and sublinear power assignment under the physical interference model. The best-known approximation bound for this problem is a very large constant. In this paper, we present an approximation algorithm for this problem, which not only has a much smaller approximation bound but also produces an independent set of links with a stronger property, i.e., strong independence.
