A journal version of this paper exists and is recommended:
Journal Version: "Power Allocation
and Routing in Multi-Beam Satellites with Time Varying
Channels," IEEE Transactions on Networking, Feb. 2003.
Conference Version: "Power and Server Allocation in a Multi-Beam Satellite with Time
Varying Channels," IEEE INFOCOM Proceedings, June 2002.

Note: The journal version extends the problem to treat
routing over many satellites. More
detail is given in Chapter 3 of
which treats general ergodic arrivals and channel states, such as Markov
modulated inputs and channels. Chapter 4 of the thesis also considers examples of
multi-hop satellite constellations with optical crosslinks and RF downlinks.
