Monotonic and Sequential Fractional Programming for Performance Optimization in Interference Networks
Resource allocation in interference networks is a timeless and important challenge. In future generations of mobile networks, heterogeneous and conflicting performance criteria are introduced leading to multi-objective programming problems. When efficiency is optimized often fractional programming - a well established technique - can be applied. However, in interference networks, the fractional objective functions are in general not suitable for fractional programming. In this invited talk, the combination of fractional programming with monotonic optimization (to achieve global optimality with high complexity) and with sequential convex programming (to achieve local optimality with lower complexity) are proposed. Their applications are illustrated with distributed and centralized power control in 5G and beyond.
