Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors address the spectrum allocation problem in cellular networks under the Coordinated Dynamic Spectrum Access (CDSA) model. In this model, a centralized spectrum broker owns a part of the spectrum and issues dynamic spectrum leases to competing base stations in the region it controls. They consider a dynamic auction based approach where the base stations bid for channels depending on their demands. The broker allocates channels to them with an objective to maximize the overall revenue generated subject to wireless interference in the network.
