In this letter, we propose a Cooperation-aware topology control scheme with Opportunistic Interference Cancellation (COIC) to improve network capacity in wireless ad hoc networks by jointly considering both upper layer network capacity and physical layer cooperative communications with interference cancellation. We show that the benefits brought by cooperative communications are opportunistic and rely on network structures and channel conditions. Such opportunistic advantages have significant impacts on network capacity, and our proposed COIC can effectively capture these opportunities to substantially improve network capacity.
