Executive Summary

The design of optimal Opportunistic Multicast Scheduling (OMS) that maximizes the throughput of cellular networks is investigated. In a cellular network, the Base Station (BS) transmits the same information to multiple users within a cell. Recently, Gopala et al. proposed a median-user static OMS scheme in which a BS selects and broadcasts to the best 50% users in each transmission until all users are served. This scheduling scheme has been shown to exploit both the multiuser diversity and the multicasting gain simultaneously.
