In this paper, we design and implement time exchange (TE) based cooperative forwarding where nodes use transmission time slots as incentives for relaying. We focus on distributed joint time slot exchange and relay selection in the sum goodput maximization of the overall network. We formulate the design objective as a mixed integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) problem and provide a polynomial time distributed solution of the MINLP. We implement the designed algorithm in the software defined…

An incentivized forwarding based resource allocation algorithm which maximizes the global utility while preserving the initial utility of each cooperative node is proposed and it is shown that the optimal relay selection in α-fair NUM reduces to the maximum weighted matching (MWM) problem in a non-bipartite graph.
Bandwidth exchange: an energy conserving incentive mechanism for cooperation
The results reveal that bandwidth exchange based forwarding can provide transmit power savings in OFDMA networks of at least 3dB compared to noncooperation.
Resource delegation and rewards to stimulate forwarding in multihop cellular networks
The novel concept of resource delegation is presented which, applied in combination with pricing based rewards, guarantees both the separation of resources between originating transmitters and relays and the economic compensation of the energy investments of the relays.
Improving amplify-and-forward relay networks: optimal power allocation versus selection
It is shown that at reasonable power levels the selection AF scheme maintains full diversity order, and has significantly better outage behavior and average throughput than the conventional scheme or that with optimal power allocation.
Efficient Resource Allocation with Flexible Channel Cooperation in OFDMA Cognitive Radio Networks
This work proposes FLEC, a novel design of flexible channel cooperation that allows secondary users to freely optimize the use of channels for transmitting primary data along with their own data, in order to maximize performance.
Stackelberg game for utility-based cooperative cognitiveradio networks
This paper proposes a cooperative cognitive radio framework, where primary users, aware of the existence of secondary users, may select some of them to be the cooperative relay, and in return lease portion of the channel access time to them for their own data transmission.
Cooperative diversity in wireless networks: Efficient protocols and outage behavior
Using distributed antennas, this work develops and analyzes low-complexity cooperative diversity protocols that combat fading induced by multipath propagation in wireless networks and develops performance characterizations in terms of outage events and associated outage probabilities, which measure robustness of the transmissions to fading.

This paper provides an overview of the architecture of the MDL, its major functions and unique algorithms, and its adaptability to different operational scenarios based on configuration parameters and performance results based both on recent lab tests using pre-EDM units and on a shared code simulation model that uses theMDL operational code in a realistic emulated networking environment.
Resource Allocation for Multiuser Cooperative OFDM Networks: Who Helps Whom and How to Cooperate
This paper focuses on leveraging cooperation for resource allocation among users such that the network performance can be improved, and provides an approximate closed-form solution for a two-user two-subcarrier case in the multiuser OFDM case.
CogNet: an architectural foundation for experimental cognitive radio networks within the future internet
A framework for research on architectural tradeoffs and protocol designs for cognitive radio networks at both the local network and the global internetwork levels is described, which will result in the CogNet architecture, a prototype open-source cognitive radio protocol stack.
