Resource allocation in multiuser cooperative OFDM system using forced cost based decisions
Munasinghe, Gayan, Jayalath, Dhammika, & Ziri-Castro, Karla I. (2012) Resource allocation in multiuser cooperative OFDM system using forced cost based decisions. In 2012 International Symposium on Communications and Information Technologies (ISCIT), 2-5 October 2012, Holiday Inn, Gold Coast, QLD.
A sub optimal resource allocation algorithm for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) based cooperative scheme is proposed. The system consists of multiple relays. Subcarrier space is divided into blocks and relays participating in cooperation are allocated specific blocks to be used with a user. To ensure unique subcarrier assignment system is constrained such that same block cannot be used by more than one user. Users are given fair block assignments while no restriction for maximum number of blocks a relay can employ is given. Forced cost based decisions  are used for block allocation. Simulation results show that this scheme outperforms a non cooperating scheme with sequential allocation with respect to power usage.
