—In cognitive radio networks (CRNs), dynamic spectrum access has been demonstrated as an effective way to improve the spectrum utilization. Spectrum holes can be exploited not only in certain time slots or frequency bands, but also at particular locations. In relay assisted CRNs, one relay at a certain location can help to identify and provide different(More)
Cognitive radio can improve the spectrum efficiency by allowing multiple secondary users to access the idle licensed spectrum, for which efficient and fair spectrum sharing is one of the key challenges. In this paper, we investigate the multiuser multi-channel spectrum allocation problem in cognitive radio networks with the objective of maximizing the(More)
