The powercontrolled scheduling algorithm proposed in [3] is also based on a two steps approach; however, the set of links obtained in the first phase is usually unfeasible and it is pruned in the second phase through a greedy algorithm that directly considers SINR constraints. The authors in [4] propose a MILP model with quadratic constraints, which does not consider the routing. The optimal solution is only used to benchmark the quality of their Heuristic algorithm for small instances. In [21] a throughput maximization problem is presented within a scheduling and power control framework. The solution approach consists in solving iteratively the relaxed LP formulation of the MILP problem. At each iteration some links are fixed and the next iteration tries to add other feasible simultaneous transmissions. In [17] end-to-end routing is included in the optimization problem. The routing problem is separately solved through a shortest path approach defining a link metric based on the number of interference conflicts caused by each link. The scheduling and power control problems are then ... |
