Relay Assisted Spectrum Sharing in Cognitive Radio Networks

In this paper, the authors propose a Relay Assisted Spectrum Sharing (RASS) scheme based on the mixed sharing strategy in cognitive radio networks. Mixed sharing is a more general sharing strategy which provides a higher spectrum utilization efficiency than underlay sharing and interweave sharing. Compared to conventional mixed sharing, the proposed approach enhances the throughput of secondary users while not causing harmful interference to the primary receiver. The optimal time allocation which maximizes the achievable capacity of the secondary system is derived.
