Energy efficiency (EE) has become an important criterion for designing the next generation (5G) communication systems. Conventional energy-efficient resource allocation algorithms generally consider the overall EE problem as nonlinear fractional program. This project aims to address the complicated problems with the aid of deep reinforcement learning.Location
