Just wanted to add that we at Jadavpur University, India worked on coming
up with performance-enhancing utility functions in game-theoretic models of
wireless MAC. In this regard, we had a couple of modest publications:

1. Improved performance with novel utility functions in a game-theoretic
model of medium access control in wireless

2. Performance Improvement of Wireless MAC Using Non-Cooperative

3. Recovering a game model from an optimal channel access scheme for

4. A Novel QoS Differentiation Framework for IEEE 802.11 WLANs: A
Game-Theoretic Approach Using an Optimal Channel Access

These papers are quite simple but they explore some novel aspects of
wireless MAC using game-theoretic approach.
If any of you are working in this area, I would love to hear from you
whether you find these papers interesting / useful.
