Special Issue of Journal of Network and Computer Applications on
“Control and Optimization over Wireless Networks”

Wireless networks, including Wireless LAN, PAN, cellular network, wireless
sensor network, and ad-hoc and mesh networks etc, are a rapidly emerging
technology providing users with network connectivity without being tethered
off of a wired network. Ideally, wireless users want to have the same
services and capabilities that they have commonly come to expect with wired
networks. However, to meet these objectives, the wireless community faces
certain challenges and need an excellent understanding of all aspects of
wireless networks. Wireless networks are large complex entities. This
complexity brings to the many problems, such as network planning, resource
management, Quality of Service scheduling, congestion and flow control,
connection admission control, and Medium Access Control. These problems are
outside the traditional communications background. They can be properly
addressed with methodologies such as optimization, estimation, adaptation,
fuzzy control, games control, robust stability, distributed control, hybrid
control. For instance, recently, there has been a surge in research
activities that utilize optimization techniques to analysis and design
wireless networks. The purpose of this special issue is to bring research
papers addressing the theme of control and optimization for wireless
networks. Subject areas of interest include, but not limited to, the

*Applications of control theory to wireless network problems
*Admission control, power control, and congestion control of wireless
*Control system design base on wireless networks
*Network utility maximization for wireless networks
*Allocation of wireless network resources such as bandwidth, rate, or power
*Optimization-based models of network traffic and topology
*Digital communications signal processing algorithms via optimization
*Cross-layer design through nonlinear optimization decomposition
*Modeling and performance evaluations for wireless networks
