Because the subnets are correlated, after solving the problem in each subnet to get its steady-state statistics, the distributions are exported to other subnets to derive their approximate state transition probability matrices and steady-state distributions, and this is conducted iteratively. Finally, performance metrics such as throughput and packet dropping probability can be obtained from the steady-state distribution of the Markov process. Note that although both Chaps. 3 and 4 use the model decomposition and iteration approach to analyze the performance of wireless networks, the interaction between different subsystems is due to scheduling and interference, respectively.

4) Channel/Queue-Aware (CQA) algorithms: The systems with CA algorithms are ordinarily not stable, since the CA algorithms do not take into account the queue length information, and therefore do not know how to react when one queue starts getting too large. On the contrary, the CQA algorithms are a class of schedulers, which consider the information about both channel and queue occupancy. 3 Model Solution and Performance Analysis 25 simple CQA algorithm is called the Max-Weight algorithm, where the user with maximum product of queue length and transmission data rate is served.
