In this paper, we propose a universal joint base station (BS) association (BSA) and power control (PC) algorithm for heterogeneous cellular networks. Specifically, the proposed algorithm iteratively updates the BSA solution and the transmit power of each user. Here, the new transmit power level is expressed as a function of the power in the previous iteration, and this function is called the power update function (puf). We prove the convergence of this algorithm when the puf of the PC strategy… CONTINUE READING
