## Abstract

The term

*frequency assignment*has been used to describe many types of problems which, quite often, have different modeling needs and objectives. These problems include:- 1.
Planning models for permanent spectrum allocation, licensing, and regulation which maximize utilization of

*all*radio spectra [94]. - 2.
Planning models for network design within a given allocation to include; aeronautical mobile, land mobile, maritime mobile, broadcast, land fixed (point-to-point) and satellite.

- 3.
On-line algorithms for dynamically assigning frequencies to users within an established network. Of special interest here are land cellular mobile systems, where an enormous amount of research has been done. A paper by Katzela and Naghshineh [55] contains nearly 100 references to works just in cellular dynamic channel assignment.
