Cellular communication devices, more popularly known as mobile phones, have transformed the face of communication in the 21st century. They have now become a necessity rather than a luxury that was enjoyed by the privileged few. As the number of cellular subscribers increases exponentially, there are several issues that have to be addressed to ensure effective and efficient usage of this technology while providing the users with a satisfying communication experience…


There are three main bodies of work addressing this concern, firstly, the user can be assigned a fixed base station, secondly, the user can be iteratively assigned to the base station which has the maximum signal to interference ratio and thirdly, a user's signal is a combination of signals from various base stations.
This paper aims to concentrate upon the second method mentioned above, i.e. Minimum Power Assignment, which is essentially an iterative method of obtaining the optimum signal strength by dynamically assigning the user to the base station that provides the best signal to interference ratio. In this model, the problem of uplink power control will be reduced to finding a vector (p) of users' transmitter power such that it satisfies the following condition:
The general interference constraints that apply to any system state that at a base station (k), a user receives a signal of power (hKjPj). At the same time, the user experiences an interference that can be denoted by ij hkipi + k.
According to the MPA iteration, i.e. ...

Each node is required to know the topology of the network within its routing zone only. Thus, nodes are updated about topological changes only witin their routing zones. Thus, in spite of the fact that a network can be quite large, the updates are only locally propagated. Since for radius greater than one, the routing zones heavily overlap, the routing tends to be extremely robust. The routes…

Speaking about how cell phones work, Layton et al (2005) said: "On a "complexity per cubic inch" scale, cell phones are some of the most intricate devices people use on a daily basis. Modern digital cell phones can process millions of calculations per second in order to compress and decompress the voice stream." When dealing with all the features and uses of a cell phone, Layton et al (2005)…
