This paper presents a novel game-theoretical framework to model the evolution of spectrum markets that consists of multiple spectrum/network operators that provide wireless access to users. It integrates models about the channel, mobility, user preference, network operators (providers), infrastructure deployment, user distribution, and price-adaptation mechanisms. Providers aim to maximize their own profit, while clients decide based on criteria, such as the financial cost of the access, transmission rate and required transmission power.
