Distributed Uplink Resource Allocation in Cognitive Radio Networks - Part II: Equilibria and Algorithms for Joint Access Point Selection and Power Allocation
Source: University of Virginia
The main objective of this two part paper is to formulate and address the problem of distributed uplink resource allocation in multi-carrier Cognitive Radio Networks (CRN) with multiple Access Points (APs). When the APs operate on non-overlapping spectrum bands, such problem is essentially a joint spectrum decision and spectrum sharing problem. In this network, the Cognitive Users (CUs) are endowed with greater flexibility than the single AP network the authors considered in the first part of the paper.
