The continuously increasing demand for resources in modern networks urges for more efficient resource allocation. Such an allocation of resources to network users can be formulated as an optimization problem. However, the existence of wireless links in modern networks and the competition for resources by multimedia applications turn the optimization problem into a non-convex one, which is in general difficult to solve. This paper presents a non-convex optimization formulation to describe the Network Resource Allocation problem in hybrid ad-hoc networks, i.e. networks with both wired and wireless links.
