The paper focuses on the dynamic resource allocation problem. In communication networks such as wireless or circuit switching networks, resources correspond to base stations or links, and the load corresponds to the calls in the network. The principle of load balancing is examined for dynamic resource allocation. The question of interest is the performance of simple allocation strategies which can be implemented online. Either finite capacity constraints on resources or mobility of users can be incorporated into the setup. The load balancing problem is formulated as an optimal control problem, and variants of a simple “least loaded routing” policy are shown to be asymptotically optimal for large call arrival rates
