This paper studies optimal power control for throughput maximization in wireless ad hoc networks. Optimal power control problem in ad hoc networks is known to be non-convex due to the co-channel interference between links. As a result, a global optimal solution is difficult to obtain. Previous work either simplified the problem by assuming that the signal- to-interference-and-noise-radio (SINR) of each and every link is much higher than 1, or settled for suboptimal solutions. In contrast, we propose a novel methodology to compute the global optimal power allocation in a general SINR regime. In particular, we formulate the problem into an equivalent linear multiplicative fractional programming (LMFP). A global optimization algorithm, referred to as LMFP-based power allocation (LBPA) algorithm, is proposed to solve the LMFP with reasonable computational complexity. Our analysis proves that the LBPA algorithm is guaranteed to converge to a global optimal solution. Through extensive simulations, we show that the proposed algorithm significantly improves the throughput of wireless networks compared with existing ones.
