Delay-Optimal Opportunistic Scheduling and Approximations: The Log Rule

  title={Delay-Optimal Opportunistic Scheduling and Approximations: The Log Rule},

This paper considers the design of multiuser opportunistic packet schedulers for users sharing a time-varying wireless channel from performance and robustness points of view. For a simplified model falling in the classical Markov decision process framework, we numerically compute and characterize mean-delay-optimal scheduling policies. The computed policies exhibit radial sum-rate monotonicity: As users' queues grow linearly, the scheduler allocates service in a manner that deemphasizes the… CONTINUE READING
