Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors consider the revenue maximization problem in auctions for dynamic spectrum access. They assume a frequency division method of spectrum sharing with a primary spectrum owner that can divide the available spectrum into sub-bands and sell them to secondary users. They assume that a secondary user's utility function is linear in the rate it can achieve by using the spectrum. They present an incentive compatible, individual rational and revenue-maximizing mechanism that the spectrum owner can use to divide the spectrum among the strategic (selfish) secondary buyers.
