A modeling framework for optimizing the flow-level scheduling with time-varying channels
(Performance Evaluation, 2010-12-31)
We introduce a comprehensive modeling framework for the problem of scheduling a finite number of finite-length jobs where the available service rate is time-varying. The main motivation comes from wireless data networks ...
Asymptotically optimal parallel resource assignment with interference
(Queueing Systems, 2010-12-31)
Motivated by scheduling in cellular wireless networks and resource allocation in computer systems, we study a service facility with two classes of users having heterogeneous service requirement distributions. The aggregate ...
On the Gittins index in the M/G/1 queue
(Queueing Systems, 2009-12-31)
For an M/G/1 queue with the objective of minimizing the mean number of jobs in the system, the Gittins index rule is known to be optimal among the set of non-anticipating policies. We develop properties of the Gittins ...
