Multiuser diversity, identified by recent information theoretic results, is a form of diversity inherent in a wireless network. The diversity gain is obtained from independent time-varying fading channels across different users. The main practical issue in multiuser diversity is lack of Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees. This study proposes a wireless scheduling algorithm named MUDSEQ for downlink channels exploiting multiuser diversity under explicit QoS constraints. The numerical results demonstrate that the novel algorithm can yield non-negligible diversity gain even under tight QoS constraints and little scattering or slow fading environments. Additionally, a system framework for dynamic resource allocation based on the proposed algorithm is developed.
