In the design of IEEE 802.16 multi-hop wireless networks, accurate estimation of end-to-end capacities plays a critical role in Quality of Service (QoS) provision-ing. Capacity information has been applied to various network control functions such as admission control, routing, and packet scheduling for assuring service guarantees. In IEEE 802.16 multi-hop relay networks, optimal relay selection, in relation to end-to-end capacity, forms an essential function in achieving good network performance in capacity-constrained networks. In this thesis, research issues relating to end-to-end capacity estimation and optimal relay selection are studied in details for improved network performance in IEEE 802.16 multi-hop wireless networks.
