The authors investigate adaptive modulation using the network utility maximization framework. They derive new cross-layer optimal power and rate adaptation policies for several practical modulation schemes. The behavior of these cross-layer policies is found to differ from policies based on physical-layer optimization only. The multiple flow single link case is analyzed and optimal power and rate policies found. The multiple interfering link case is investigated and a numerical method presented to find optimal policies for this case.
