About this book


This SpringerBrief presents a survey of dynamic resource allocation schemes in Cognitive Radio (CR) Systems, focusing on the spectral-efficiency and energy-efficiency in wireless networks. It also introduces a variety of dynamic resource allocation schemes for CR networks and provides a concise introduction of the landscape of CR technology. The author covers in detail the dynamic resource allocation problem for the motivations and challenges in CR systems. The Spectral- and Energy-Efficient resource allocation schemes are comprehensively investigated, including new insights into the trade-offs for operating strategies. Promising research directions on dynamic resource management for CR and the applications in other wireless communication systems are also discussed. Cognitive Radio Networks: Dynamic Resource Allocation Schemes targets computer scientists and engineers working in wireless communications. Advanced-level students in computer science and electrical engineering will also find this brief useful reading about the next generation of wireless communication.
