ABSTRACT In this paper, we study the optimal power allocation of wireless relay nodes which are used in the secondary user (SU) communication of a cognitive radio (CR) network. We consider the behavior of transmitting powers of SUs where those powers are limited to the tolerable interference as seen by the primary user (PU) communication. To improve the performance of the secondary communication based on minimizing the outage probability, we re-formulate the power allocation problem with a new set of constraints. These are obtained by considering the co-channel interference generated by the SU communication to the PU communication. The power allocation problem is solved for both regenerative and non regenerative relay models under Rayleigh fading conditions. SU communication with N number of relays is discussed and compared. The outage probability of SU communication is limited by the interference power threshold (IPT) constraints of PUs and is affected significantly by the IPT levels of PUs.

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes an optimal strategy for power allocation algorithm for source and relay nodes in multihop cognitive radio network that minimizes the outage probability of data transmission while meeting the constraints of interference to primary user and total transmit power of cognitive radio users. Overall objective is to enhance the network lifetime along with an increase in sum (total) transmission capacity. Extensive simulations are done for both energy aware (EA) and non-energy aware (NEA) power allocation schemes. Simulation results show that EA based power allocation not only enhances network lifetime but also reduces interference to primary user at the cost of slight decrease in sum transmission capacity compared to NEA based scheme.

    ABSTRACT: In the past decade, cognitive radio and cooperative communication techniques have been proposed in the literature for efficiently utilizing the radio resources. Cognitive radio is an emerging technology intended to enhance the utilization of the radio frequency spectrum. The cooperative communication system, with the same total power and bandwidth of legacy wireless communication systems, can increase the data rate of the future wireless communication system. A combination of cognitive radio with cooperative communication can further improve the future wireless network performance. Efficient resource allocation in cooperative cognitive radio network (CRN) is essential in order to meet the challenges of future wireless networks. In this article, a survey of resource allocation in cooperative CRN is presented. We discuss the taxonomy of objectives and protocols used in the literature for resource allocation in cooperative CRN. This paper also highlights the use of power control, cooperation types, network configurations and decision types used in cooperative CRN. Finally, directions for future research are outlined.

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes linear precoder-decoder schemes for a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) underlay device-to-device (D2D) communication system by considering two D2D modes; two-way relaying based D2D and direct D2D. The D2D communication takes place in the same spectrum as the cellular communication. In the two-way relaying based D2D mode, the relay uses physical layer network coding (PNC). The precoder-decoder design is based on minimizing mean square errors (MSE), which is useful to mitigate interference, and to improve the performance of both D2D and cellular communications. Distributed and centralized algorithms are proposed considering bi-directional communication in both D2D and cellular communications. In the direct D2D mode, a similar MSE procedure is adopted, and exact solutions are derived for precoder-decoder matrices. In the numerical results, the optimality and convergence properties of the proposed algorithms are analyzed. Additionally, the system performances are investigated with interference thresholds, and maximum available power at the nodes. Two transmit mode selection schemes are considered as dynamic and static selection schemes. Finally, these selection schemes are investigated over an XY grid by varying the position of a given device. The results reveal that the PNC two-way relaying based D2D mode extends the coverage area of D2D communication.
