Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation Under Uncertainty in Cognitive Radio Networks
Source: Nanyang Technological University
The authors consider the problem of dynamic bandwidth allocation among different service classes under uncertainty in cognitive radio networks. In such networks, the secondary users compete for bandwidth resources and the service providers compete for users access (e.g., subscription). To address this problem, a two-level dynamic game framework is developed. The underlying dynamic service selection of secondary users is modeled as an evolutionary game based on replicator dynamics. The randomly irrational churning behavior of secondary users is modeled as a stochastic disturbance to the service selection distribution evolution.
