In this paper, the authors address the problem of strategic base stations placement in cognitive radio networks. They consider a primary user, operating on the frequency channels of a primary network, and an operator (a leader) facing the competition of a second operator (a follower). These operators are willing to exploit the unused capacity of the primary network and maximize their profits derived from operating the base stations installed and clients served. The leader is aware of the future arrival of the follower, who is able to capture clients by placing its own base stations.
