Distributed TV Spectrum Allocation for Cognitive Cellular Network Under Game Theoretical Framework
This paper proposes efficient schemes for wireless cellular base stations to utilize TV white spectrum (such base stations referred to as white base stations - WBS), so that WBSes can provide good services to their end terminals without violating the incumbent TV services. In particular, the authors consider two complementary problems. On the one hand, given a set of TV stations and white base stations, maximum permitted transmit power levels on all channels for each base stations needs to be determined. By use of convex programming, they propose here an improved, centralized mechanism.
