Cooperative Spectrum Allocation in Centralized Cognitive Networks Using Bipartite Matching

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Conflict free spectrum allocation for secondary users in cognitive networks is a challenging problem, since the accessible spectrum is shared among users. The problem becomes to be especially difficult when it is wanted to get the maximum utility of the system considering access fairness among users. In this paper, a novel method using bipartite graph matching is proposed to approach this target, where users cooperatively optimize spectrum allocation to get the maximal system utility while avoiding interference with its neighbors.
