Competitive Scheduling in Wireless Collision Channels With Correlated Channel State

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors consider a wireless collision channel, shared by a finite number of mobile users who transmit to a common base station. Each user wishes to optimize its individual network utility that incorporates a natural tradeoff between throughput and power. The channel quality of every user is affected by global and time-varying conditions at the base station, which are manifested to all users in the form of a common channel state. Assuming that all users employ stationary, state-dependent transmission strategies, they investigate the properties of the Nash equilibrium of the resulting game between users.
