Optimal resource allocation scheme for cognitive radio networks with relay selection based on game theory

Abstract

In this paper, we present a non-transferable utility coalition graph game (NTU-CGG) based resource allocation scheme with relay selection for a downlink orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDMA) based cognitive radio networks to maximize both system throughput and system fairness. In this algorithm, with the assistance of others SUs, SUs with less available channels to improve their throughput and fairness by forming a directed tree graph according to spectrum availability and traffic demands of SUs. So this scheme can effectively exploit both space and frequency diversity of the system. Performance results show that, NTU-CGG significantly improves system fairness level while not reducing the throughput comparing with other existing algorithms.
