With wireless local area network technology, not only classical telecommunication operators but virtually everyone was enabled to set up wireless/mobile networks. In tools or in toys, WLAN is now present everywhere. The IEEE 802.11 standard for WLAN gets amendments frequently, either improving performance, adding functionality or extending its use to new domains, e.g., to domains like vehicular networks. In this seminar we take a look at selected fundamental papers that deal with performance evaluation of WLANs. The overall goal is a deep understanding of the basic ideas and techniques to analyze and define the capability of wireless networks.

The ambitious content of these papers may require the participating students to rework some basic knowledge (e.g., in mathematics) but their comprehension benefits from the joint work of two students per paper.
