A Hybrid Noncooperative Game Model for Wireless Communications

The authors investigate a hybrid non-cooperative game motivated by the practical problem of joint power control and Base Station (BS) assignment in Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) wireless data networks. They model the integrated power control and BS assignment problem such that each mobile user's action space includes not only the transmission power level but also the respective BS choice. Users are associated with specific cost functions consisting of a logarithmic user preference function in terms of service levels and convex pricing functions to enhance the overall system performance by limiting interference and to preserve battery energy.
