Consider a cognitive radio network with two types of users: primary users (PUs) and cognitive users (CUs), whose locations follow two independent Poisson point processes. The cognitive users follow the policy that a cognitive transmitter is active only when it is outside the primary user exclusion regions. We found that under this setup the active cognitive(More)
—Superposition coding is a well-known capacity-achieving coding scheme for stochastically degraded broadcast channels. Although well-studied in theory, it is important to understand issues that arise when implementing this scheme in a practical setting. In this paper, we present a software-radio based design of a superposition coding system on the GNU Radio(More)
In this paper, we investigate the joint design of transmit beamforming and power control to maximize the weighted sum rate in the multiple-input single-output (MISO) cognitive radio network constrained by arbitrary power budgets and interference temperatures. The nonnegativity of the physical quantities, e.g., channel parameters, powers, and rates, is(More)
