    Cross-layer scheduling is a promising way to improve Quality of Service (QoS) given a power constraint. In this paper, we investigate the system with random data arrival and adaptive transmission. Probabilistic scheduling strategies aware of the buffer state are applied to generalize conventional deterministic scheduling. Based on this, the average delay and power consumption are analysed by Markov reward process. The optimal delay-power tradeoff curve is the Pareto frontier of the feasible delay-power region. It is proved that the optimal delay-power tradeoff is piecewise-linear, whose vertices are obtained by deterministic strategies. Moreover, the corresponding strategies of the optimal tradeoff curve are threshold-based, hence can be obtained by a proposed effective algorithm. On the other hand, we formulate a linear programming to minimize the average delay given a fixed power constraint. By varying the power constraint, the optimal delay-power tradeoff curve can also be obtained. It is demonstrated that the algorithm result and the optimization result match each other, and are further validated by Monte-Carlo simulation.Comment: 6 pages, 4 figures, accepted by IEEE ICCC 201

    Data sets of very large linear feasibility problems solved by projection methods

    We give a link to a page on the Web on which we deposited a set of eight huge Linear Programming (LP) problems for Intensity-Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT) treatment planning. These huge LP problems were employed in our recent research and we were asked to make them public.Comment: 4 pages, 1 tabl
