Received: 9 January 2019 Accepted: 20 March 2019 Cognitive radio (CR) technology is an emerging technology that overcomes the scarcity and poor utilization of spectrum resources. Under the constraint of system energy, this paper puts forward a cooperative spectrum sensing algorithm to minimize the sensing overhead, considering the mutual relation between sensing duration and the number of cognitive users. The simulation results show that, when the selected cognitive users face the same mean… Expand

A Novel Physical Layer Security Scheme in OFDM-Based Cognitive Radio Networks
A physical-layer-security scheme for an underlay relay-based cognitive radio network (CRN) that uses orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) as the medium access technique is proposed and an algorithm is also proposed for subcarrier mapping at the forwarding relaying node. Expand
Resource allocation for OFDM-based multiuser cooperative underlay cognitive systems
The simulation results show that the proposed scheme achieves higher secondary and sum rates compared to existing approaches with perfect CSI and the robustness of the proposed algorithm when the secondary user has only partial information about channel gains is derived. Expand
