The application of mathematical analysis to the study of wireless ad hoc networks has met with limited success due to the complexity of mobility and traffic models, the dynamic topology, and the unpredictability of link quality that characterize such networks. The ability to model individual, independent decision makers whose actions potentially affect all(More)
—Direct extensions of distributed greedy interference avoidance (IA) techniques developed for centralized networks to networks with multiple distributed receivers (as in ad hoc networks) are not guaranteed to converge. Motivated by this fact, we develop a waveform adaptation (WA) algorithm framework for IA based on potential game theory. The potential game(More)
—Cognitive radio (CR) is an enabling technology for numerous new capabilities such as dynamic spectrum access, spectrum markets, and self-organizing networks. To realize this diverse set of applications, CR researchers leverage a variety of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques. To help researchers better understand the practical implications of AI to(More)
— A framework to construct convergent interference avoidance (IA) algorithms in networks with multiple distributed receivers (as in ad hoc networks) based on potential game theory is developed in this paper. This is motivated by the fact that direct extensions of distributed greedy IA techniques for centralized networks to these decentralized networks do(More)

In networks with transmitting users having separate un-coordinated receivers, waveform adaptation by greedy interference avoidance (IA) algorithms ([1], [2] and [3]) might not lead to fair network resource allocations. A game theoretic framework for this scenario, based on Potential game theory is presented in this paper. This model provides insight into(More)
The Software-Defined Radio (SDR) research community currently needs an implementation of the SCA core framework (CF) that is open to modifications, free, simple, and in C++. Recognizing this need Virginia Tech has developed and released OSSIE (Open Source SCA Implementation::Embedded). This paper describes the underlying philosophy for the development of(More)
The set of input-output permutations that are routable through a multistage interconnection network without any connict (known as the admissible set), plays an important role in determining the capability of the network. Recent works on the permutation admissibity problem of shuue-exchange networks (SEN) of size N N, deal with (n + k) stages, where n =(More)
