34 Another algorithm that uses the MA approach is presented in [33]. In this paper, the authors propose a block-wise subcarrier allocation algorithm that is shown in Figure 16. N subcarriers are divided into M blocks and each block has n adjacent subcarriers. The bandwidth of each block of subcarriers is smaller than the coherence bandwidth of the channel and hence the channel is flat-fading for each block. Also, the subcarriers in a block are assumed to be highly correlated to each other. Each user is assigned a certain number of blocks based on his or her minimum data rate constraint. The authors define the problem as: P = min P m m = 1 M with the constraints P P o and r k R k …(E26) P o is the total power constraint and R k is the minimum required rate for user k . r k is the allocated rate of user k and is given by: r k = f km F P m h k 2 ( k ) σ n 2 m = 1 M …(E27) To solve the problem, the authors first calculate and assign C k ( k [1,
