It is widely recognized that the wireless spectrum is a scarce and limited resource and that the present practice of static spectrum allocation and exclusive licensing is inefficient. While many models have been proposed, approaches generally either focus on profit maximization of individuals (Such As the Government or Users) or maximization of spectrum utilization. This paper considers an efficient, or socially optimal, spectrum sharing that consists of three objectives: full (Quantitative) utilization, effective (Qualitative) utilization, and zero interference.
