In networking, the allocation of limited resources among the users of the network is critical to success. Significant performance gains can be achieved by using cross-layer approaches. This paper covers basic cross-layer resource allocation problems for wireless fading channels. The resources to be allocated include the transmission power and rate assigned to each user. Focus is on characterizing fundamental performance limits, taking into account both network layer QoS and physical layer performance.
