The authors develop a realistic pricing modeling for dynamic spectrum access network considering a number of factors that influence real world trading. Their model incorporates the reputation of sellers, incentive mechanism to attract buyers, timing requirement of the contract, signal quality along with bandwidth size and price of the spectrum resources. Reputation information is accumulated from self experience and/or from the recommendations of other users. Trustworthiness of the recommending SUs is also modeled in this paper. An incentive mechanism is applied to encourage in dissemination of recommendations and to attract the buyers by providing discounts.
