In science:

While Tp (n) and Sp(n) represent the per-node and sum throughputs of the primary network in the presence of the secondary network, we use the notations Talone (n) and Salone (n) to denote the per-node and sum throughputs of the primary network in the absence of the secondary network, respectively.
Cognitive Networks Achieve Throughput Scaling of a Homogeneous Network
Under the given primary protocol, Talone (n) = Θ(1/√n log n) and Based on Lemma 1, we set ap = 2 log n Salone (n) = Θ(pn/ log n) are achievable w.h.p. when the secondary network is absent or silent.
Cognitive Networks Achieve Throughput Scaling of a Homogeneous Network
Results similar to Lemma 1 can be found in and , where their proposed schemes also achieve the same Talone (n) and Salone (n).
Cognitive Networks Achieve Throughput Scaling of a Homogeneous Network
Therefore, Salone (n) is lower bounded by (1 − ǫ) n 2 Talone (n) w.h.p..
Cognitive Networks Achieve Throughput Scaling of a Homogeneous Network
Based on the analysis used for the direct routing, we derive the same results of Theorems 1 and 3 except now we have Talone (n) = Θ(1/√n) and Salone (n) = Θ(√n).
