Radio Resource Allocation (RRA) in cellular systems is a relevant and difficult task that shouldassign the system resources in the most efficient manner while fulfilling different constraints suchas Quality of Service (QoS). In wireless systems that employ Single Carrier - Frequency DivisionMultiple Access (SC-FDMA) as in Long Term Evolution (LTE) uplink, RRA is even more difficultsince the frequency resources should be assigned in contiguous blocks of subcarriers to eachterminal. In this work we study two important RRA problems in SC-FDMA: the total data ratemaximization and the total data rate maximization with minimum user satisfaction constraints. Weformulate them as optimization problems and show that the optimal solutions are not practical tobe employed in real systems due to the high computational complexity. Therefore, we propose twoefficient heuristic solutions for those problems. By simulation results, we show that both solutionsare near optimal and subject only to small performance degradation compared to the complex andimpractical optimal solutions.
