Research has shown that efficient and effective radio resource management is a key requirement for improved capacity and quality of service in wireless communication networks. Most resource management schemes are based on centralized frameworks where a central resource manager performs all the resource allocation functions. Centralized schemes have been proven to be inefficient especially in modern wireless networks employing the MIMO technology. Distributed schemes provide a better alternative; the resource allocation decisions are performed by all the nodes in the network.
