Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This paper formulates a potential game framework of a distributed channel selection scheme. The proposed channel selection scheme aims to mitigate the flow-in-the-middle (FIM) throughput starvation problem in dense carrier sense multiple access (CSMA) networks. The FIM throughput starvation occurs when neighbors of a given transmitter are not within the carrier sense ranges of each other. Since each neighbor sends a frame regardless of the other neighbor, the transmitter in the middle has a high probability of detecting the channel being occupied for a prolonged time and therefore experience extremely low throughput. The proposed scheme requires each transmitter to select a channel that reduces the number of three-node-chain topologies within its two-hop neighbors. We prove the existence of the potential function which corresponds to the negative value of total number of three-node-chain topologies in the entire network. Moreover, we conduct evaluations of the proposed scheme through graph-based simulation and ns-3 simulator. Simulation confirms that the number of nodes whose throughput are extremely low has been significantly reduced.
