26 4.1.2 Margin Adaptive Approach As mentioned before, MA usually focuses on minimizing the total transmission power while requiring a minimum user data rate [28]. In general terms, MA minimizes the total transmit power while maintaining a minimum quality of service (QoS) for each user. The QoS requirements can be data rate, bit error rate, jitter and delay. In this sub-section, I first define the MA approach using the simple case of a single user. Next, I define the MA approach for the multi-user system described in section 4.1.1. After that, I will survey some algorithms that use this approach. Finally, I will simulate a few MA algorithms in MATLAB and verify the results. To understand MA better, consider the simple case of a single-user system. The OFDMA system has N subcarriers and a total bandwidth of B Hz. The goal of MA is to assign the minimum possible power p n (where n is an integer ranging from 1 to N) to each subcarrier n such that the number of bits transmitted in (1/ T s

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
