In this paper, we address the problem of joint scheduling and resource allocation in the downlink of an orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA)-based wireless network when the per-user SNR is known only in distribution. In particular, we consider sum-utility maximization over user schedules, powers, and code rates, subject to an instantaneous sum-power constraint. We consider both a “continuous ” scenario where, during a time-slot, each OFDMA subchannel can be time-shared among multiple users and/or code rates, and a “discrete ” scenario where no time-sharing is allowed. For the non-convex optimization problem arising in the continuous case, we propose an efficient exact solution. For the mixedinteger optimization problem arising in the discrete case, we propose a polynomial-complexity approximate solution and derive a bound on its optimality gap. We also provide a numerical study of goodput maximization for the SNR distribution that results from the use of pilot-aided MMSE channel estimation. 1
