Power allocation for max-sum rate and max-min rate proportional fairness in NOMA

In this letter, we consider proportional fairness scheduling (PFS) for downlink non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) with two users. Unlike conventional multiuser diversity systems, the power allocation plays a key role in PFS for NOMA as it can support multiple users simultaneously with positive transmission rates. With different criteria, we find optimal power allocation. Among those, it is shown that the PFS scheme that maximizes the minimum normalized rate can provide not only proportional fairness, but also small variation of transmission rates.
