The last decade has brought a rapid growth in demand for fast and error-resilient telecommunication services. In accordance with this growth, broadband wireless networks have become an integral part of the global communication infrastructure. Provisioning of Quality-of-Service (QoS) in broadband wireless networks requires coping with the challenges brought by the wireless interface, and allocating resources available at different layers among nodes, links, and end-to-end connections. Nonlinear optimization tools have been successfully adopted to analyze and design algorithms that fulfill such requirements.
