We consider the problem of distributed scheduling in wireless networks. We present two different algorithms whose performance is arbitrarily close to that of maximal schedules, but which require low complexity due to the fact that they do not necessarily attempt to find maximal schedules. The first algorithm requires each link to collect local queue-length information in its neighborhood, and its complexity is independent of the size and topology of the network. The second algorithm is presented for the node-exclusive interference model, does not require nodes to collect queue-length information even in their local neighborhoods, and its complexity depends only on the maximum node degree in the network.
