We consider the task of assigning time slots on a user-dependent and time-varying wireless channel. This scheduling problem occurs in cellular networks due to the presence of channel fading and user mobility. We introduce a simple notion of global fairness, where each of n users is guaranteed a 1/(n + ε) fraction of its total possible throughput, for… (More)
—This paper presents an algorithm that improves channel-access statistics for wireless medium. The proposed modification of the standard CSMA algorithm is analytically shown to yield better results and simulation results are given to support this claim.
