This paper investigates radio resource scheduling for a cooperative cellular network. A method based on exhaustive search is used to get the optimal solution. According to the results from the optimal solution, two power based algorithms which aim to maximize the total network bandwidth efficiency and to reduce the complexity are then proposed. The results from the proposed algorithms show that they can achieve 93.03% and 97.21% of the optimal total bandwidth efficiency respectively whilst also reducing the complexity significantly. In addition, one of the proposed algorithms also exhibits a superior performance in a non-shadowing setting, achieving over 99% of the optimum total bandwidth efficiency.
