Channel assignment in cellular communication systems and optical networks

Grant number: DP0558677


Due to the rapid growth in mobile communications, efficient management of the scarce radio spectrum has emerged as an important issue. To avoid interference various conditions need to be satisfied by channels assigned to the transmitters in a cellular communication network. This project targets optimal assignments under such constraints, and similar problems for optical networks. Its implementation will have potential applications in computer and telecommunication industries, and advance significantly our knowledge on relevant subjects of mathematics and operations research.
