Weighted Sum Energy Efficiency Maximization in Ad Hoc Networks

In this letter, we propose a distributed adaptive-pricing algorithm aimed at solving the weighted sum energy efficiency (EE) maximization problem in ad hoc networks. It is theoretically proven that the proposed distributed algorithm strictly converges to the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) point of the problem.

Significant performance enhancement is observed by numerical results with fast convergence. Moreover, it is shown that the proposed algorithm degrades gracefully when decreasing overhead of information exchange.
