Forward Error Correcting (FEC) coding is a practical technique for increasing the transmission efficiency of virtually all digital communication channels. whatever their power or bandwidth limitations. Efficiency then applies to both the power and the bandwidth required to support a given information rate. or conversely to increase the information rate to(More)
In this paper we analyze the interference channel as a conflict situation. This viewpoint implies that certain points in the rate region are unreasonable to one of the players. Therefore these points cannot be considered achievable based on game theoretic considerations. We then propose to use Nash bargaining solution as a tool that provides preferred(More)
— In this paper we discuss the use of cooperative game theory for analyzing interference channels. We extend our previous work, to games with N players as well as frequency selective channels and joint TDM/FDM strategies. We show that the Nash bargaining solution can be computed using convex optimization techniques. We also show that the same results are(More)
—In this paper we propose to use the well known game theoretic Gale-Shapley stable marriage theorem from game theory as a basis for spectrum allocation in cognitive radio networks. We analyze the performance of the proposed solution and provide tight lower and upper bounds on both the stable allocation and the optimal allocation performance. Then we present(More)
