Scheduling algorithms that support quality of service (QoS) differentiation and guarantees for wireless data networks are crucial to the development of broadband wireless networks. Wireless communication poses special problems that do not exist in wireline networks, such as time-varying channel capacity and location-dependent errors. Although many mature scheduling algorithms are available for wireline networks, they are not directly applicable in wireless networks because of these special problems. This paper provides a comprehensive and in-depth survey on recent research in wireless scheduling. The problems and difficulties in wireless scheduling are discussed. Various representative algorithms are examined. Their themes of thoughts and pros and cons are compared and analyzed. At the end of the paper, some open questions and future research directions are addressed
