About the Authors
  • Do you need to design efficient wireless communications systems? This unique text provides detailed coverage of radio resource allocation problems in wireless networks and the techniques that can be used to solve them. Covering basic principles and mathematical algorithms, and with a particular focus on power control and channel allocation, you will learn how to model, analyze, and optimize the allocation of resources in both physical and data link layers, and for a range of different network types. Both established and emerging networks are considered, including CDMA and OFDMA wireless networks, relay-based wireless networks, and cognitive radio networks. Numerous exercises help you put knowledge into practice, and provide the tools needed to address some of the current research problems in the field. This is an essential reference whether you are a graduate student, researcher or industry professional working in the field of wireless communication networks.

    • Provides a comprehensive and systematic review of resource allocation problems in wireless networks and the techniques that can be used to solve them
    • Ideal as a supplementary text for graduate students taking courses on wireless networks, and as a one-stop reference for researchers and industry professionals working in the field of wireless network communications
    • Includes numerous practice problems and exercises, and is accompanied online by programming codes
