This paper proposes, analyzes and evaluates a novel user-oriented Radio Resource Management (RRM) strategies for coexisting WiMAX/WLAN reconfigurable system. The proposed strategies are based on game theory concepts, where games are dynamically played depending on the system condition with the applications on the terminal modeled as players. User's terminals have two interfaces, which can be used for enforcing reconfigurability by deploying RRM strategy that results in appropriate network selection for each application. The proposed RRM strategies are distributed and they map rationality behavior by adopting two game theory concepts: Nash and Quantal Response Equilibrium (QRE). These RRM strategies are compared with SNR based strategy.
