Title: "Utility-maximising properties of some service-rates allocations in wireless communication networks"
Abstract: We consider wireless communication networks where service rates of nodes depend on their signal to interference plus noise ratios. We demonstrate that these rates are utility-maximising in a certain sense. Using this observation, we prove stability of single-hop networks under natural assumptions. We also obtain bounds on some moments of the stationary workload.
