Pareto optimization for uplink NOMA power control

Balevi, Eren
Gitlin, Richard D.
© 2018 IEEE.Game theory has been employed in the determination of optimum power levels of nodes for uplink power domain non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA). In this paper, a novel closed form utility function with an optimized penalty-to-reward parameter ratio is derived whose outcome gives Pareto optimum power levels. The dynamically determined power levels with this utility function have significant advantage over the static equally allocated power levels in terms of the bit error probability in the practical case of imperfect successive interference cancellation (SIC) at the receiver.

Stochastic geometry analysis of IEEE 802.15.6 UWB WBAN performance with game theoretical power management
Balevi, Eren; Gitlin, Richard D. (2018-05-23)
© 2018 IEEE.Inter-network interference in ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless body area networks (WBANs) is analyzed using stochastic geometry with the objective of quantifying the inherent interference tolerance of UWB WBANs in terms of the bit error probability. Such networks are expected to be common in the IoT segment of 5G networks and our methodology may be extended to other network configurations. Our results show that the amount of interference that can be tolerated depends on the node density of a Poisso...
Max-Min Fair Precoder Design and Power Allocation for MU-MIMO NOMA
Yalcin, Ahmet Zahid; Cetin, Mustafa Kagan; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2021-06-01)
In this correspondence, transmit precoders and their power allocation coefficients are designed jointly for a downlink non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) wireless communication system. The objective is to provide max-min fairness (MMF) among the strongest users in each group, while maintaining minimum target rates for all the other users. The proposed solutions are respectively based on semi-definite relaxation (SDR) and successive convex approximation (SCA) and on the minimum mean square error (MMSE) ap...
Optimal resource allocation algorithms for efficient operation of wireless networks
Özel, Ömür; Uysal Bıyıkoğlu, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, we analyze allocation of two separate resources in wireless networks: transmit power and buffer space. Controlled allocation of power can provide good performance for both users and the network. Although centralized mechanisms are possible, distributed power control algorithms are preferable for efficient operation of the network. Viewing distributed power allocation as the collection of rational decisions of each user, we make game theoretic problem formulations, devise distributed algorith...
ALOHA-NOMA for Massive Machine-to-Machine IoT Communication
Balevi, Eren; Rabee, Faeik T. Al; Gitlin, Richard D. (2018-07-27)
© 2018 IEEE.This paper proposes a new medium access control (MAC) protocol for Internet of Things (IoT) applications incorporating pure ALOHA with power domain non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) in which the number of transmitters are not known as a priori information and estimated with multihypothesis testing. The proposed protocol referred to as ALOHA-NOMA is not only scalable, energy efficient and matched to the low complexity requirements of IoT devices, but it also significantly increases the throug...
Diversity Analysis of Optimal SC-FDE MIMO Systems and Comparison with OFDM Based Transmission
Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2011-09-14)
In this paper, we propose a general framework for both time domain (TD) and frequency domain (FD) block iterative equalization schemes for wideband multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels. The equalization systems are designed by jointly optimizing the forward and backward filters based on minimum mean square error (MMSE) criterion. The equivalence of block iterative TD and FD equalization with decision feedback is established by analytically showing that the same mean square error (MSE) is achieved ...
