The observed unbalance of spectrum utilization combined with the proliferation of wireless devices and the growth of online social networks call for a joint study of cognitive radios (CRs) and social networking towards improving the operation of both the underlying CR-capable communications infrastructures and of the corresponding dynamic networks. In this… (More)
Future dynamic wireless and online social networks will require more agile and efficient infrastructures to support the anticipated user traffic and service requirements. In response, in this work, we propose a novel spectrum-agile resource allocation approach that combines Markov Random Field (MRF) cross-layer decisions for the allocation of resources at… (More)
