11 Iterative algorithm Dinkelbach(67) P = {λ R + : ω Ω λ ωρ ωr = 1 r = 1,..., R; ω Ω k λ ω K k k = 1,..., K} Iterative method MP: max λ P q(λ) = N(λ)/D(λ) Introduce F(x) = max λ P N(λ) xd(λ) Propertie: λ is optimal for MP F(q(λ )) = 0 Find λ n s.t. q(λ ) q(λ n ) < δ, δ > 0 Find λ n s.t. F(q(λ n )) < ε, ε > 0 Since F(x) is decreasing and F(q(λ )) = 0 Proof: q(λ 0 ) = N(λ 0 )/D(λ 0 ) F(q(λ 0 )) 0 F(q(λ 0 )) = 0 0 > N(λ) q(λ 0 )D(λ), λ q(λ 0 ) = max λ P N(λ)/D(λ) QoS optimization for an on-demand transportation system via a fractional linear objective function p. 11
