A novel optimization framework for resource allocation in wireless networks and radar systems is proposed, which merges the methods of maximum block improvement (MBI) and of sequential optimization. A detailed convergence proof is provided, showing that the proposed algorithm is able to monotonically increase the objective value while ensuring that every limit point of the generated variable sequence fulfills the problem first-order optimality conditions under very mild hypothesis. These results extend available convergence results on MBI and sequential optimization, significantly widening the range of applications that can be handled by the proposed framework compared to available approaches.

Abstract

A novel optimization framework for resource allocation in wireless networks and radar systems is proposed, which merges the methods of maximum block improvement (MBI) and of sequential optimization. A detailed convergence proof is provided, showing that the proposed algorithm is able to monotonically increase the objective value while ensuring that every limit point of the generated variable sequence fulfills the problem first-order optimality conditions under very mild hypothesis. These results extend available convergence results on MBI and sequential optimization, significantly widening the range of applications that can be handled by the proposed framework compared to available approaches. This point is illustrated in detail presenting relevant applications from both the cellular and radar context, which fall under the umbrella of the developed optimization method.
