In this paper, we investigate secrecy capacity of a cognitive radio network based on stochastic geometry distributions. We consider the Poisson process of both the secondary users and the eavesdroppers, and analyze how the stochastic interference from the secondary users can influence the secrecy capacity of the primary users. First, we describe a network(More)
In this paper, we propose a joint channel allocation and multicast routing scheme for a multihop cognitive radio network. Our scheme can react to the dynamic change of channel availability. It can maximize the multicast throughput by jointly performing channel allocation and multicast routing. We first model the activities of the primary users, channel(More)
In this paper, we study the optimal power control schemes for fading channels in cognitive relay networks under different power constraints of the primary user. Under the peak power and the average interference power constraints of the primary user, we derive the optimal power allocation strategies to maximize the ergodic achievable rate of the cognitive(More)
In this paper, we investigate a network codingaware channel allocation and routing scheme for multi-hop cognitive radio networks. We consider network coding and channel availability in cognitive radio networks and maximize the throughput by allocating the channel and link rate appropriately. First, we model the activities of the primary users and the(More)
One of the biggest challenges in multi-hop cognitive radio networking is the dynamic change of channel availability to secondary users which could cause the breaking of routes and thus communications. To address this challenge, we propose an adaptive channel allocation and routing scheme in this paper. Our scheme is flexible so that it can react to the(More)
Cognitive radio technology plays an important part in satellite communications (SATCOM) since it can improve the spectrum efficiency for the satellite communication system. One type of cognitive radio transmission scheme (underlay) is discussed in this paper. Firstly, we formulate the problem of the cognitive radio satellite communication system for a(More)
Delay issue is a challenge in multi-hop cognitive radio networking because of the dynamic change of channels available to the cognitive radio nodes. To address this challenge, we propose a channel allocation and rate allocation scheme with low complexity in this paper. Our scheme is flexible so that it can react to the dynamic change of channel(More)
