In this paper, the problem of resources allocation in Decode-and-Forward (DF) relayed OFDM based cognitive system is considered. The dual decomposition technique is adopted to obtain an asymptotically optimal subcarrier pairing, relay selection, and power allocation. The resources are optimized under the individual power constraints in source and relays so that the sum rate is maximized while the interference induced to the primary system is kept below a pre-specified interference temperature limit. Moreover, a sub-optimal scheme is presented to avoid the high computational complexity of the optimal scheme.
