The Rate Region of a Cooperative Scheduling System Academic Article uri icon


  • A wireless communication system where a common base station is scheduled to transmit information to multiple mobile users on a time division (TD) basis is considered. The capacity region of this system is found for the two user case and the optimal scheduling scheme is proposed which achieves the boundary of the capacity region. Furthermore, the optimal scheduling scheme is found for the case when the remote mobile users can perform downlink cooperation and the achievable rate region of the downlink cooperative system is characterized. Finally, a simple iterative algorithm is proposed for finding the resource allocation parameters and the scheduling scheme for the cooperative system. 2010 IEEE.
