Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Throughput optimal policies for a degraded Gaussian broadcast channel were discussed. The policies stabilized the queues without knowing the statistics of the arrival processes of the queues. Power was allocated to the various receivers based on current queue length information. Available transmission rates were assumed to be given by the information-theoretic capacity region. It was also assumed that the codebook changed during every time slot.
