The capacity of adhoc wireless networks is constrained by the mutual interference of concurrent transmissions between nodes. We study a model of an adhoc network where n nodes communicate in random sourcedestination pairs. These nodes are assumed to be mobile. We examine the persession throughput for applications with loose delay constraints, such that the topology changes over the timescale of packet delivery. Under this assumption, the peruser throughput can increase dramatically when nodes are mobile rather than fixed. This improvement can be achieved by exploiting node mobility as a type of multiuser diversity.

Multiuser diversity is a form of diversity inherent in a wireless network, provided by independent timevarying channels across the different users. The diversity benefit is exploited by tracking the channel fluctuations of the users and scheduling transmissions to users when their instantaneous channel quality is near the peak. The diversity gain increases with the dynamic range of the fluctuations and is thus limited in environments with little scattering and/or slow fading. In such environments, we propose the use of multiple transmit antennas to induce large and fast channel fluctuations so that multiuser diversity can still be exploited. The scheme can be interpreted as opportunistic beamforming and we show that true beamforming gains can be achieved when there are sufficient users, even though very limited channel feedback is needed. Furthermore, in a cellular system, the scheme plays an additional role of opportunistic nulling of the interference created on users of adjacent cells. We discuss the design implications of implementing this scheme in a complete wireless system.

In this paper we review the most peculiar and interesting informationtheoretic and communications features of fading channels. We first describe the statistical models of fading channels which are frequently used in the analysis and design of communication systems. Next, we focus on the information theory of fading channels, by emphasizing capacity as the most important performance measure. Both singleuser and multiuser transmission are examined. Further, we describe how the structure of fading channels impacts code design, and finally overview equalization of fading multipath channels.

The fading broadcast channel with confidential messages (BCC) is investigated, where a source node has common information for two receivers (receivers 1 and 2), and has confidential information intended only for receiver 1. The confidential information needs to be kept as secret as possible from receiver 2. The broadcast channel from the source node to receivers 1 and 2 is corrupted by multiplicative fading gain coefficients in addition to additive Gaussian noise terms. The channel state information (CSI) is assumed to be known at both the transmitter and the receivers. The parallel BCC with independent subchannels is first studied, which serves as an informationtheoretic model for the fading BCC. The secrecy capacity region of the parallel BCC is established. This result is then specialized to give the secrecy capacity region of the parallel BCC with degraded subchannels. The secrecy capacity region is then established for the parallel Gaussian BCC, and the optimal source power allocations that achieve the boundary of the secrecy capacity region are derived. In particular, the secrecy capacity region is established for the basic Gaussian BCC. The secrecy capacity results are then

In wireless data networks the optimal routing of data depends on the link capacities which, in turn, are determined by the allocation of communications resources (such as transmit powers and bandwidths) to the links. The optimal performance of the network can only be achieved by simultaneous optimization of routing and resource allocation. In this paper, we formulate the simultaneous routing and resource allocation problem and exploit problem structure to derive ef£cient solution methods. We use a capacitated multicommodity flow model to describe the data ¤ows in the network. We assume that the capacity of a wireless link is a concave and increasing function of the communications resources allocated to the link, and the communications resources for groups of links are limited. These assumptions allow us to formulate the simultaneous routing and resource allocation problem as a convex optimization problem over the network flow variables and the communications variables. These two sets of variables are coupled only through the link capacity constraints. We exploit this separable structure by dual decomposition. The resulting solution method attains the optimal coordination of data routing in the network layer and resource allocation in the radio control layer via pricing on the link capacities.

In this paper, we provide a theoretical framework for crosslayer optimization for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) wireless networks. The utility is used in our study to build a bridge between the physical layer and the media access control (MAC) layer and to balance the efficiency and fairness of wireless resource allocation. We formulate the crosslayer optimization problem as one that maximizes the average utility of all active users subject to certain conditions, which are determined by adaptive resource allocation schemes. We present necessary and sufficient conditions for utilitybased optimal subcarrier assignment and power allocation and discuss the convergence properties of optimization. Numerical results demonstrate a significant performance gain for the crosslayer optimization and the gain increases with the number of active users in the networks.

AbstractThis paper considers resource allocation and pricing for the downlink of a wireless network. We describe a model that applies to either a timeslotted system (e.g. Qualcomm's HDR proposal) or a CDMA system; the main feature of this model is that the channel quality varies across the users. We study using a pricing scheme for the allocation of radio resources. We show that to maximize revenue in such a system, the base station should allocate resources in a discriminatory manner, where different users are charged different prices based in part on their channel quality. However optimally allocating resources in this way is shown to require knowledge about each user's utility function. We consider a suboptimal scheme which does not require knowledge of the users ' utility functions, and show that this scheme is asymptotically optimal, in the limit of large demand. Moreover such a scheme is shown to maximize social welfare. We also consider a heuristic scheme for the case of small demand, which does not require perfect knowledge about the users ' utility functions. We provide numerical results that illustrate the performance of this heuristic. I.

MIMO communication links, i.e. those with multiple transmit and receive antennas, offer significant advantages in terms of rate and reliability. In cellular systems, however, gains may be limited due to fading and interference. One potential solution is known as multiuser diveristy, in which a packet scheduler improves throughput by exploiting the independence of the fading and interference statistics of different users. In this paper, we consider the problem of exploiting multiuser diversity in M1MO systems, especially those with zeroforcing linear receivers. We propose a number of different scheduling disciplines and compare them in terms of average throughput as a function of the number of users and number of antennas.
