Resource Allocation Frameworks for Multi-carrier-based Cognitive Radio Networks with full and Statistical CSI

Abstract : The ubiquity and proliferation of wireless technology and services considerably lead to a sharp increase in the number of individuals requiring access to wireless networks in recent decades. The growing number of mobile subscribers results into a dramatic increasing request for more radio spectrum. Consequently, underutilized yet scarce radio spectrum becomes overwhelmingly crowded. Therefore, the advent of new radio resource management paradigm capable of switching from static licensed spectrum management to dynamic spectrum access is of great importance. Cognitive radio (CR) emerged as a promising technology capable of enhancing the radio spectrum by permitting unlicensed users known as secondary users to coexist with primary users. Meanwhile, multi-carrier modulations that can efficiently overcome the detrimental effect of multipath fading in a wireless channel are very appealing for the physical layer of cognitive radio networks. However, the lack of cooperation between primary and secondary users may lead to asynchronous transmission and consequently result into inter-carrier interferences. Judicious resource allocation frameworks need to be designed in order to maintain the coexistence between primary and secondary users. Guaranteeing secondary users' quality of service (QoS), while ensuring that interferences generated to the primary users are tolerable, poses significant challenges for the design of wireless cognitive radio networks. This dissertation focuses on resource, i.e. subcarrier and power, allocation for multi-carrier-based downlink cognitive radio networks under perfect or statistical channel state information (CSI) with secondary users interact either cooperatively or competitively. Firstly, the problem of margin adaptive and energy-efficiency optimization are investigated considering perfect CSI at the secondary users' side. Secondly, assuming statistical CSI available at the secondary users, we address the problem of utility maximization under primary and secondary outage constraints. We provide some near-optimal resource allocation schemes to tackle the aforementioned problems. The findings and proposed frameworks can eventually be used for performance assessment and design of practical cognitive radio networks.
