The performance of a multistation packet-radio network in which the nodes of the network employ some collision resolution algorithm (CRA) for accessing a shared radio channel is analyzed. The two CRAs considered here are the binary-tree CRA (BTCRA) and the clipped binary-tree CRA (CBTCRA). The exact analysis of a multistation network with these access schemes is intractable. Therefore, the authors present an approximate method that captures the interactions among the nodes of different stations. The mean idea is to view the interference among the nodes of different stations as independent random noises and compute the probabilities of these noises, taking into account the interactions between the nodes. Numerical results of the approximate analysis are presented and compared with the results of simulations
