Resource Allocation for 4G and Beyond by Springer

This book presents the underlying technological breakthroughs that allowed the current

state of wireless technology development to evolve. The book focuses on the two lower

layers of the ISO/OSI layered model, specifically the physical and data link layers including

the media access control sub-layer. These two layers are of particular importance to

wireless systems due to the spectrum shortage, the broadcast nature of interference, and

time variability in the wireless channel.

Topics covered in this book include: radio resource allocation (RRA) for emerging

architectures such as Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) and Device-to-Device

communications (D2D); RRA for quality of service control; propagation and transceiver

aspects of MIMO systems; and the design and selection of MIMO multiuser precoders.

The proposed approaches for RRA and MIMO are applicable to mobile communication

standards such as 3GPP’s LTE and LTE-Advanced, but also apply further to the

continuously evolving wireless access technologies landscape.

Each of the book’s 11 chapters includes state-of-the-art concepts, introductory sections

to the basics, and references for further reading. Several chapters also include technical

details related to modern wireless communications technologies along with performance

results and case studies.

From the foreword:

In this book, Professor Cavalcanti and his colleagues share their insights and views on a

number of highly relevant research topics related to 4G and 4G technology developments.

The content of this book aims at design and optimization of current and emerging cellular

systems. Researchers, students and engineers active or interested in the field will find the

content useful and are encouraged to share the insights and results.
