—The spectrum usage by a secondary user often happens in a certain geographical region and in a certain time interval, and the requests often come in an online fashion. Considering the selfish behaviors of primary users and secondary users, it is imperative to design online double spectrum auction methods. The most significant challenge is how to make the(More)
Efficient aggregation of data collected by sensors is crucial for a successful application of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Both minimizing the energy cost and reducing the time duration (or called latency) of data aggregation have been extensively studied for WSNs. Algorithms with theoretical performance guarantees are only known under the protocol(More)
—Data aggregation is a key functionality in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). This paper focuses on data aggregation scheduling problem to minimize the delay (or latency). We propose an efficient distributed algorithm that produces a collision-free schedule for data aggregation in WSNs. We theoretically prove that the delay of the aggregation schedule(More)
—It is imperative to design efficient and effective online spectrum allocation methods since requests for spectrums often come in an online fashion. In this paper, we propose SALSA, strategyproof online spectrum admission for wireless networks. We assume that the requests arrival follows the Poisson distribution. Upon receiving an online spectrum request,(More)

—In wireless sensor and actor networks (WSANs), a set of static sensor nodes and a set of (mobile) actor nodes form a network that performs distributed sensing and actuation tasks. In [1], Abbasi et al. presented DARA, a Distributed Actor Recovery Algorithm, which restores the connectivity of the inter-actor network by efficiently relocating some mobile(More)
—In this work, we address the spectrum utilization problem in cognitive radio (CR) networks, in which a CR can only utilize spectrum opportunities when the channel is idle. One challenge for a CR is to balance exploring new channels and exploiting existing channel, due to the fact that the channel availability and channel quality, potentially heterogeneous(More)
