In this talk, we discuss selected problems arising from ad hoc wireless networks, problems such as the fairness in routing and distributed state estimation. We show how these problems lead naturally to concepts such as generalized Perron-Frobenius eigenvectors, von Neumann equilibrium, and low data rate distributed controller, as well as to Baynesian decision function and stochastic approximation.
