Abstract

This paper focuses on downlink resource allocation in IEEE 802.16j transparent relay networks. A game theoretical formulation is derived where a resource allocation problem is represented as a two-stage bargaining game. Based on game formulation and solutions, the proposed approach not only provides improved performance but also supports fairness among the inter-class and intra-class users according to their heterogeneities in terms of the rate requirement, channel conditions, and link types. The simulation results confirm that the proposed scheme achieves a tradeoff between effective data rate and proportional fairness while also outperforming the static scheme and guaranteeing the rate requirements.
