This paper investigates the throughput performance of carrier sense multiple access (CSMA) in a packet radio network and Nakagami fading environment. The approach considered includes the signal capture model with incoherent addition of interfering signals. The cases of uniform attenuation for all terminals (or perfect power control) as well as unequal average power levels are studied. Analytical and numerical results are presented.
