Chapter 1. Introduction

Abstract
This chapter includes two sections. The first section briefly introduces radio resource management (RRM), including RRM problems in the first and second generation wireless cellular communication networks, unique features in wireless communication networks that bring both challenges and opportunities for RRM, and basic functions of RRMin current and future wireless communication networks. The second section focuses on power control and interference management in wireless networks, where the importance of power control and its relationship to other network functions are first introduced, then power allocation problems are formulated mathematically, and finally existence of feasible solutions and other properties related to power allocations are analyzed.

Chapter 2. CDMA-Based Wireless Cellular Networks

Abstract
In a CDMA-based cellular network, all radio cells share the same frequency bands, and users can transmit simultaneously. Transmissions from one user causes interference to other users. The more users are in the system and the higher power they transmit, the more interference they generate to one another. A CDMAbased system is typically interference-limited. The management of transmission power and mutual interference is directly related to system capacity and qualityof- service (QoS) to the users. In this chapter, we first briefly review the motivations of power control in cellular CDMA networks, then study the power allocation problem in a single-cell CDMA network. Based on the analysis, different aspects that affect the transmission power and system capacity are investigated. We then study the power allocation problem in a multi-cell CDMA network. The relationship between transmission power, network capacity, and QoS to the users is analyzed.

Chapter 4. Advanced Wireless Communication Networks

Abstract
In a conventional wireless cellular communication network, mobile stations (MSs) directly communicate with their associated base stations (BSs), which are the capacity bottleneck and limit the amount of traffic that can be supported in the system.
