Efficiently sharing the spectrum resource is of paramount importance in wireless communication systems, in particular in Personal Communications where large numbers of wireless subscribers are to be served. Spectrum resource sharing involves protecting other users from excessive interference as well as making receivers more tolerant to this interference. Transmitter power control techniques fall into the first category. In this paper we describe the power control problem, discuss its major factors, objective criteria, measurable information and algorithm requirements. We attempt to put the problem in a general framework and propose an evolving knowledge-bank to share, study and compare between algorithms.
