In this paper, the authors consider the network-welfare optimization for a Cognitive Radio Network (CRN) consisting of multiple Primary-Users (PUs) and multiple Secondary-Users (SUs). For each pair of PU and SU, the interaction between them is modeled as a Stackelberg game where the PU shares its licensed channel with the SU by charging the interference, and the SU is allowed to access the PU channel by paying the interference fee. The objective of the CRN thus is to maximize the network-welfare of all PUs and SUs by forming optimal pairs among them, which can be considered as a Maximum Weight Matching (MWM) problem on a bipartite graph.
