A noncooperative group of users sharing a channel via ALOHA is considered. Depending on their quality-of-service requirements and willingness to pay, the users will select a desired throughput. The users then participate in a noncooperative game wherein they adjust their transmission-probability parameters in an attempt to attain their desired throughputs. The possible equilibrium points reached by such a community of users are studied.
