Design of low delay wireless networks that optimally utilize the network capacity is one of the most important problems in network theory and engineering. Since the seminal paper of Tassiulas and Ephremides which proposed a joint routing and scheduling algorithm that achieves the maximum network throughput, significant efforts have been invested in developing more efficient network control algorithms. Most existing works, however, focus on achieving a guaranteed fraction of the maximum throughput region with low communication and computation complexity.
