In this paper, we analyze the capacity gains of opportunistic spectrum-sharing channels in fading environments with imperfect channel information. In particular, we consider that a secondary user may access the spectrum allocated to a primary user as long as the interference power, inflicted at the primar's receiver as an effect of the transmission of the(More)
This paper investigates the fundamental capacity limits of opportunistic spectrum-sharing channels in fading environments. The concept of opportunistic spectrum access is motivated by the frontier technology of cognitive radio which offers a tremendous potential to improve the utilization of the radio spectrum by implementing efficient sharing of the(More)
In this fast growing technology world, where communications play a major rule for connecting people and machines together, the growth in wireless applications have caused an increasing demand for gaining access to the radio spectrum. However, the outdated spectrum utilization policies, imposed by the regulatory bodies in the past century, have caused the(More)
In this paper, we focus on opportunistic spectrum- sharing channels, whereby a secondary user may access the spectrum owned by a primary user as long as the average interference power, inflicted at the primary's receiver as an effect of the transmission power of the secondary user, remains below a predefined threshold, and investigate the effect of(More)
This paper investigates delay constrained performance of a cognitive radio relay network when the cognitive (secondary) user transmission is subject to satisfying spectrum-sharing restrictions imposed by a primary user. The primary user allows a secondary user to gain access to its allocated spectrum band as long as certain thresholds on the interference(More)
Space-time block codes are known to orthogonalize the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless channel, thus reducing the space-time vector detection to a simpler scalar detection problem. The capacity over orthogonalized ergodic correlated Rayleigh and Ricean flat-fading MIMO channels has so far only been given in integral form. This letter derives a(More)
In this paper, we study the effect of channel estimation error at the receiver on the mutual information of a multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) channel obeying correlated Rayleigh fading. We assume that perfect knowledge of the channel correlation is available at the receiver and find upper and lower bounds on the mutual information for Gaussian input(More)
This paper presents the three-fold energy, rate and delay tradeoff in mobile multimedia fading channels. In particular, we propose a rate-efficient power allocation strategy for delay-outage limited applications with constraints on energy-per-bit consumption of the system. For this purpose, at a target delay-outage probability, the link-layer energy(More)
We consider a network of cognitive users (also referred to as secondary users (SUs)) coexisting and sharing the spectrum with primary users (PUs) in an underlay cognitive radio network (CRN). Specifically, we consider a CRN wherein the number of SUs requesting channel access exceeds the number of available frequency bands and spatial modes. In such a(More)
