Decoupling Link Scheduling Constraints in Multi-Hop Packet Radio Networks
March 1989 (vol. 38 no. 3)
pp. 455-458
An aspect of the problem of constructing a minimal length link schedule for a PRN (packet radio network) is examined. Specifically, it is assumed that a PRN of unrestricted topology is given, including a set of users, a set of channels, a set of interference links, a frequency band assignment, and an initial link schedule. It is required that any link schedule satisfies two constraints. The fir
