Resource allocation in communication networks aims to assign various resources such as power, bandwidth and load in a fair and economic fashion so that the networks can be better utilized and shared by the communicating entities. The design of efficient resource-allocation algorithms is, however, becoming more and more challenging due to the precipitously increasing scale of the networks. This thesis strives to understand how to design such low-complexity algorithms with performance guarantees. In the first part, the link scheduling problem in wireless ad hoc networks is considered. The scheduler is charge of finding a set of wireless data links to …
