The authors study the use of auction algorithm in allocating a wireless fading channel among a set of non-cooperating users in both downlink and uplink communication scenarios. For the downlink case, they develop a novel auction-based algorithm to allow users to fairly compete for a wireless fading channel. They use the all-pay auction mechanism whereby user bid for the channel, during each time-slot, based on the fade state of the channel, and the user that makes the higher bid wins use of the channel.
