About this book
This Springer Brief focuses on the current state-of-the-art research on spectrum sensing by using energy detection, a low-complexity and low-cost technique. It includes a comprehensive summary of recent research, fundamental theories, possible architectures, useful performance measurements of energy detection and applications of energy detection. Concise, practical chapters explore conventional energy detectors, alternative forms of energy detectors, performance measurements, diversity techniques and cooperative networks. The careful analysis enables reader to identify the most efficient techniques for improving energy detection performance. Energy Detection for Spectrum Sensing in Cognitive Radio is a valuable tool for researchers and practitioners interested in spectrum sensing and cognitive radio networks. Advanced-level students studying wireless communication will also benefit from this brief.
