In this paper we propose a novel approach for the performance prediction of multistage cooperative broadcast. It is based on inter-node distance distributions, considers each stage independently and employs the expected values of the coverage area and the number of nodes reached. The required distance distributions are derived and a simple but accurate approximation of their expected values is discussed. The proposed approach is then evaluated for a large range of node densities and compared to Monte Carlo simulations. We thereby show that it leads to very accurate performance predictions for the coverage area and the number of nodes reached in each stage, even for low node densities.
