This book has been prepared to present state of the art on WiMAX Technology. It has been constructed with the support of many researchers around the world, working on resource allocation, quality of service and WiMAX applications. Such many different works on WiMAX, show the great worldwide importance of WiMAX as a wireless broadband access technology. This book is intended for readers interested in resource allocation and quality of service in wireless environments, which is known to be a complex problem. All chapters include both theoretical and technical information, which provides an in depth review of the most recent advances in the field for engineers and researchers, and other readers interested in WiMAX.
