The cognitive interference channel is an interference channel in which one transmitter is non-causally provided with the message of the other transmitter. This channel model has been extensively studied in the past years and capacity results for certain classes of channels have been proved. In this paper, the authors present new inner and outer bounds for the capacity region of the cognitive interference channel as well as new capacity results. Previously proposed outer bounds are expressed in terms of auxiliary random variables for which no cardinality constraint is known. Consequently it is not possible to evaluate such outer bounds explicitly for a given channel model.
