Given a mobile telephone network, whose geographical coverage area is divided into cells, phone calls are serviced by assigning frequencies to them, so that no two calls emanating from the same or neighboring cells are assigned the same frequency. Assuming an online arrival of calls and the calls will not terminate, the problem is to minimize the span of… (More)

Online scheduling of parallel jobs is a problem where jobs with unit processing time and integer release times and deadlines are scheduled on a set of processors. Every job requests certain number of processors. In our setting processors are organized as a hypercube and jobs are scheduled on subhypercubes of the hypercube. The objective is to schedule as… (More)

We study the online frequency allocation problem for wireless linear (highway) cellular networks, where the geographical coverage area is divided into cells aligned in a line. Calls arrive over time and are served by assigning frequencies to them, and no two calls emanating from the same cell or neighboring cells are assigned the same frequency. The… (More)

We study an on-line parallel job scheduling problem , where jobs arrive one by one. A parallel job may require a number of machines for its processing at the same time. Upon arrival of a job, its processing time and the number of requested machines become known, and it must be scheduled immediately without any knowledge of future jobs. We present a… (More)

We study the problem of on-line scheduling of parallel jobs on two machines. The jobs are parallel in the sense that each of them specifies the number of processors, in this case 1 or 2, required for simultaneous processing. The jobs are presented one by one. Upon receiving a job, we must assign the job to a time slot in the schedule before the next job is… (More)

—Virtualization brings many benefits such as improving system utilization and reducing cost through server consolidation. However, it also introduces isolation problem when running multiple virtual machine workloads in one physical platform. Additionally, with the advent of multi-core technology, more and more cores are built into one die in today's data… (More)

In this paper we establish a general algorithmic framework between bin packing and strip packing, with which we achieve the same asymptotic bounds by applying bin packing algorithms to strip packing. More precisely we obtain the following results: (1) Any offline bin packing algorithm can be applied to strip packing maintaining the same asymptotic… (More)

In the extensible bin packing problem we are asked to pack a set of items into a given number of bins, each with an original size. However, the original bin sizes can be extended if necessary. The goal is to minimize the total size of the bins. We consider the problem with unequal (original) bin sizes and give the complete analysis on a list scheduling… (More)
