A fair scheduling algorithm is proposed to improve the system throughput while maintaining the fairness in the downlink of a code-division multiple access (CDMA) system employing AMC and multicodes. R. Kwan and C. Leung suggested an optimal scheduling to maximize the total throughput based on simultaneous transmissions strategy. In this letter, we extend the optimal scheduling so that some degree of fairness can be maintained. We formulate a mixed-integer nonlinear programming problem to assign the radio resources such as the transmit power and codes to several users effectively. The result shows that the proposed algorithm provides a significant throughput gain over PF scheduling with one-by-one transmission at the same level of fairness
