—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.
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)
