Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of dynamic control for power and rate allocation in V-BLAST wireless systems over Markovian fading channels. The problem is posed as a controlled Markov decision process problem with the goal of minimizing the average transmission power with the constraint on the average delay that can be interpreted as the quality of service (QoS) requirement of a given application. Several structural results on the nature of the optimal randomized policies and costs are derived. In particular, it is shown that number of actions to be considered can be reduced by dividing the rate allocation problem into bit-loading problem across individual antennas and the total rate allocation based on the current buffer and channel state. Further, optimal rate allocation policies are shown to be a mixture of two pure policies that are nondecreasing in the buffer state. These results can be utilized to devise an efficient online learning algorithm for optimal rate allocation policies
