Joint BS Selection and Subcarrier Assignment for Multicell Heterogeneous OFDM Unicasting
In this paper, the resource allocation is studied for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) unicasting by multiple Base Stations (BSs). In the considered scenario, each user is restricted to being covered by one BS, i.e., BS selection, while each subcarrier is assigned to at most one user, i.e., subcarrier assignment. Thus, interference does not exist among these BSs. They aim at maximizing the weighted sum of data rates subject to limited transmission power at each BS, while the minimum rates required by users are satisfied. BS selection and subcarrier assignment are considered jointly.
