Joint Network-Wide Opportunistic Scheduling and Power Control in Multi-Cell Networks

The authors present a unified analytical framework that maximizes generalized utilities of a wireless network by network-wide opportunistic scheduling and power control. That is, base stations in the network jointly decide mobile stations to be served at the same time as the transmission powers of base stations are coordinated to mitigate the mutually interfering effect. Although the maximization at the first glance appears to be a mixed, twofold and nonlinear optimization requiring excessive computational complexity, they show that the maximization can be transformed into a pure binary optimization with much lower complexity.
