Summary

Wireless communications and networking technology are advancing at a very rapid pace. Newer technologies and standards are evolving to serve the ever-increasing number of users demanding different types of mobile applications and services. Research and development activities on wireless technology constitute one of the most important segments of research and development in the telecommunications area today. Radio resources such as the radio spectrum and transmission power are the fundamental ingredients for any wireless system. Radio resource management is a fundamental problem in wireless networks. Efficient allocation and management of radio resources to serve the mobile users with different requirements is essential for practical deployment and operation of wireless communications systems and networks.

Radio resource allocation is a very broad topic that cannot be fully covered in a single book. This book with the title Radio Resource Management in Wireless Networks: An Engineering Approach particularly focuses on resource management issues related to power control, interference management, joint power control and cell association, channel assignment, and multiple access control in traditional as well as emerging wireless networks such as multi-tier cellular, relay-based cellular, and cognitive radio networks (CRNs). This book intends to provide background knowledge on resource allocation in wireless networks from a system-centric or engineering point of view, review the existing related literature, discuss the research challenges, present different techniques to model and analyze the resource allocation problems, and develop both centralized or distributed resource allocation algorithms. This book includes the classical as well as recently developed models and analyses for allocation of different resources (e.g., spectrum and transmission power) in cellular wireless networks. It will be useful for graduate students (M.Sc. and junior Ph.D. students) to understand different resource allocation problems and algorithms in different types of wireless networks (i.e., both infrastructure-based and infrastructure-less wireless networks). It can be used as a textbook for a graduate course on “Wireless Networks” as well as a reference book for researchers and engineers working in the area of wireless communications and networks.
