In this paper, we apply the combinatorial auction scheme to solve the spectrum allocation problem under heterogeneous supply and demand in cognitive radio networks. The heterogeneity of spectrum is embodied via exploiting multiple attributes, based on which a valuation function is devised to evaluate the preference of an SU over a spectrum band. We first propose an auction scheme consisting of a greedy-like winner determination algorithm and a critical value based discriminatory pricing policy… CONTINUE READING
