The purpose of this thesis is to explore the concept of resource scheduling and pricing and its relation to carrier aggregation. The first main topic is a modified Frank Kelly algorithm that allows for the use of utility functions that are piecewise concave, but not a member of a strictly \'diminishing return\' model. This adjustment to the Frank Kelly algorithm allows resource allocation to take into account devices with multiple applications. The second topic introduces the idea of scheduling resources in a carrier aggregation scenario assuming the carriers are scheduled sequentially.
