This paper considers optimization of the user and base-station (BS) association in a wireless downlink heterogeneous cellular network under the proportional fairness criterion. We first consider the case where each BS has a single antenna and transmits at fixed power and propose a distributed price update strategy for a pricing-based user association scheme, in which the users are assigned to the BS based on the value of a utility function minus a price. The proposed price update algorithm is… 
Joint User Association and User Scheduling for Load Balancing in Heterogeneous Networks
TLDR
A joint UA and US algorithm, which can be implemented on each user’s side and base station's side separately, is proposed to obtain the single-BS association and resource allocation solutions, and a remarkable feature of the proposed algorithm is that apart from load balancing, multiuser diversity is exploited in the association process to further improve system performance.

TLDR
This thesis considers the division of the downlink spectrum into multiple sub-bands and optimizes user association and BS powers independently over each sub-band and provides an interesting alternative to the existing “soft frequency reuse” (SFR) scheme widely employed in mobile networks to maintain high network capacity while ensuring coverage for cell-edge users.
