Different optimization functions are possible:
Total throughput maximization
¢-proportionally-fair throughput maximization
Given dynamic demands Dij(t,¢t), assign non-interfering time-spectrum blocks to nodes, such that the demands are satisfied as much as possible.
Captures MAC-layer and
Can be separated in:
Throughput Tij(t,¢t) of a link in [t,t+¢t] is
minimum of demand Dij(t,¢ t) and capacity C(B) of allocated time-spectrum block
Min max fair
over any time-window ¢
Problem can be studied in any interference model!
