In this paper, we study a weighted-sum rate maximization problem in SC-FDMA which is adopted as the multiple access scheme for the uplink in the 3GPP-LTE standard. Unlike OFDMA, in addition to the restriction of allocating a sub-channel to one user at most, the multiple sub-channels allocated to a user in SC-FDMA should be consecutive as well. This renders(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) use the unlicensed industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) band for transmissions. However, with the increasing usage and demand of these networks, the currently available ISM band does not suffice for their transmissions. This spectrum insufficiency problem has been overcome by incorporating the opportunistic spectrum(More)
In this paper, we study resource allocation and relay selection in a decode-and-forward downlink OFDMA cooperative network assuming imperfect channel state information (CSI) at the base station (BS). We assume that due to feedback delay, the BS has only outdated CSI of BS to users and inter-user links. We propose a centralized optimization framework in(More)
The present study has been deliberated in order to compare the cardioprotective potential of 3-hydroxymethyl-glutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors, Atorvastatin and Simvastatin in hyperhomocysteinemic rat hearts. L-methionine (1.7 g/kg/day orally) was administered to rats for 4 weeks to produce experimental hyperhomocysteinemia (Hhcy). Isolated(More)
In this paper, we study resource allocation in a downlink OFDMA system assuming imperfect channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter. To achieve the individual QoS of the users in OFDMA system, adaptive resource allocation is very important, and has therefore been an active area of research. However, in most of the the previous work perfect(More)
Most of existing works on resource allocation in TDMA and OFDMA systems assume the availability of perfect channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter. The availability of only a noisy estimate of the channel and the feedback delay are the problems which are faced more often. In this paper, we study the effect of feedback delay on resource allocation(More)
In this paper, we study resource allocation and adaptive modulation in SC-FDMA which is adopted as the multiple access scheme for the uplink in the 3GPP-LTE standard. A sum-utility maximization (SUmax), and a joint adaptive modulation and sum-power minimization (JAMSPmin) problems are considered. Unlike OFDMA, in addition to the restriction of allocating a(More)
