Executive Summary

Traditionally, the frequency spectrum is licensed to users in a rigid manner where the licensee has the exclusive right to access the allocated band. However, an unlicensed (cognitive) user may share a frequency band with a licensed (primary) owner as long as the interference is below a certain threshold. This makes power control a critical important issue in these networks. In this paper, the authors consider a decentralized power control algorithm that satisfies the most two significant metrics in cognitive radio network, capacity of cognitive network and total interference to primary users.
