Uplink scheduling/resource allocation under the single-carrier FDMA constraint is investigated, taking into account the queuing dynamics at the transmitters. Under the single-carrier constraint, the problem of MaxWeight scheduling, as well as that of determining if a given number of packets can be served from all the users, are shown to be NP-complete. Finally, a matching-based scheduling algorithm is presented that requires only a polynomial number of computations per timeslot, and in the case of a system with large bandwidth and user population, provably provides a good delay (small-queue) performance, even under the single-carrier constraint.
