Successful spectrum sharing in a cognitive radio network depends on the correct and quick detection of primary activity. Cooperative spectrum sensing is therefore suggested to enhance the reliability of such detection. However, it renders another significant problem of increased detection delay and traffic burden. Moreover, efficient schemes for(More)
We consider a wireless communication scenario with K source-destination pairs communicating through several half-duplex amplify-and-forward relays. We design the relay beamforming matrices by minimizing the total power transmitted from all the relays subject to quality of service constraints on the received signal to interference-plus-noise ratio at each(More)
This paper develops a novel framework for sharing secret keys using the Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) protocol. We first characterize the underlying information theoretic limits, under different assumptions on the channel spatial and temporal correlation function. Our analysis reveals a novel role of “dumb antennas” in overcoming the negative(More)
We consider a secondary user with energy harvesting capability. We design access schemes for the secondary user which incorporate random spectrum sensing and random access, and which make use of the primary automatic repeat request (ARQ) feedback. The sensing and access probabilities are obtained such that the secondary throughput is maximized under the(More)
—We consider a cognitive radio scenario with an energy harvesting secondary user (SU) attempting to access a primary channel randomly. We assume multipacket reception (MPR) capability and investigate a system in which the SU may or may not exploit the primary feedback messages. The access probabilities are obtained to maximize the secondary throughput under(More)
A wireless communication scenario is considered with <i>K</i> single-antenna source-destination pairs communicating through several half-duplex amplify-and-forward MIMO relays where each source is targeting only one destination. The relay beamforming matrices are designed in order to minimize the total power transmitted from the relays subject to quality of(More)
—In this paper, we consider a time-slotted cognitive radio (CR) setting with buffered and energy harvesting primary and CR users. At the beginning of each time slot, the CR user probabilistically chooses the spectrum sensing duration from a predefined set. If the primary user (PU) is sensed to be inactive, the CR user accesses the channel immediately. The(More)
In this paper, we consider the design of access schemes for secondary users in cognitive radio systems based on the primary user feedback information. We consider a secondary user employing a random access scheme with an access probability that depends on the primary user feedback state. We show that the proposed scheme can enhance the system performance in(More)
