On the Lambert-W Function for Constrained Resource Allocation in Cooperative Networks

Provided by: Springer Topic: Mobility Date Added: Jul 2011 Format: PDF
In cooperative networks, a variety of resource allocation problems can be formulated as constrained optimization with system-wide objective, e.g., maximizing the total system throughput, capacity or ergodic capacity, subject to constraints from individual users, e.g., minimum data rate, transmit power limit, and from the system, e.g., power budget, total number of subcarriers, availability of the Channel State Information (CSI). Most constrained resource allocation schemes for cooperative networks require rigorous optimization processes using numerical methods since closed-form solutions are rarely found.
