We use equilibrium point analysis to analyze the effect of terminal mobility on the performance of PRMA in a cellular environment. We derive expressions for PRMA's throughput and packet dropping probability, in the presence of terminal mobility. We employ a path enumeration technique based on Mason's (1960) gain formula for signal flow graphs to evaluate the packet dropping probability. We present results showing the marginal effect that terminal mobility has on PRMA's performance.
