Broadcast spectrum is scarce, both in terms of our ability to access existing spectrum and as a result of access rules created by governments. An emerging paradigm called cognitive radio, however, has the potential to allow different systems to dynamically access and opportunistically exploit the same frequency band in an efficient way, thereby allowing broadcasters to use spectrum more efficiently.

Cognitive Radio and Interference Management: Technology and Strategy brings together state-of-the-art research results on cognitive radio and interference management from both theoretical and practical perspectives. It serves as a bridge between people who are working to develop theoretical and practical research in cognitive radio and interference management, and therefore facilitate the future development of cognitive radio and its applications.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Cognitive Radio Architectures and Models
  • Collaborative Relays
  • Competitive Heterogeneous Networks
  • Dynamic Network Architecture
  • Information Theory for Cognitive Radio
  • Interference Management Strategies
  • IP Mobility Management
  • Opportunistic Spectrum Sensing and Transmissions
  • Spectrum Sensing and Access
  • Theoretical Performance Analysis

Reviews and Testimonials

Sixteen papers explore challenges and developments in spectrum sensing methodologies, interference mitigation schemes, cognitive radio network analyses, resource allocation and sensing strategies, spectrum access and mobility management, cross-layer designs, and cognitive radio network security. Serving as a bridge between people working on theoretical and practical wireless multimedia services, the book is organized from the communication lower layer to the communication upper layer and describes both academic theories and practical applications.

Recommended- As the subjects on CR in this book are presented in clear and readable manner, the book is recommended to all experts dealing with spectrum management within operators and regulatory bodies to understand CR technology and its applications in effective spectrum usage. The book is, also, interesting for researchers, students, and especially for the CR designers and CR applications engineers. It is highly recommended to postgraduate and doctoral students, especially chapters dealing with simulations, fuzzy logic and the game theory.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Meng-Lin Ku received the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Communication Engineering from National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, in 2002, 2003 and 2009 respectively. Between 2009 and 2010, he held post-doctoral positions in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at National Chiao Tung University and in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University (in chronological order). In August 2010, he became the faculty member of the Department of Communication Engineering with National Central University, currently holding a position as an Assistant Professor. He is a member of the IEEE Communications Society and served as technical program committee members for numerous international conferences such as VTC, ICCT, etc. He is the secretary of the 2012 IEEE International Conference on Telecommunications for Intelligent Transport Systems. His current research interests are in the wide areas of next-generation mobile and wireless communications, cognitive radios, and optimization for radio access.
Jia-Chin Lin received a B.S. and a M.S. degree from the Department of Electronics Engineering at National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) in Taiwan in 1994 and 1995, respectively, and a Ph.D. degree from National Taiwan University (NTU) in Taiwan in 1998. Jia-Chin Lin was in the obligatory military service from July 1998 to March 2000 and then joined the Microelectronics and Information Systems Research Center at NCTU as a Research Assistant Professor. In February 2001, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at National Chi Nan University (NCNU) in Taiwan as an Assistant Professor. In August 2004, he was promoted to serve as an Associate Professor. From July to August of 2004 and from August 2005 to July 2006, he held the visiting associate professorship in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. In August 2006, he joined the faculty in the Department of Communication Engineering at National Central University (NCU) in Taiwan as an Associate Professor. In August 2008, he was promoted to serve as a Full Professor. In January 2011, he became a Distinguished Professor. Since August 2011, he has been serving as the Chairperson in the Department of Communication Engineering at NCU. His research interests include wireless transmission technologies, signal processing for communications and synchronization techniques. Jia-Chin Lin has been serving as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology since 2008. He is serving as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Signal Processing Letters and as the Lead Guest Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology (Special Issue on Telematics Advances for Vehicular Communication Networks) in 2011. He has served as a Technical Program Committee Member for numerous IEEE conferences and as a reviewer for IEEE and IET journals. Jia-Chin Lin has published more than 20 papers in first-class international journals, presented more than 20 papers at international (principal) conferences and has one patent. Almost all of the publications are single-authored and based on his independent work. He has also served as the Vice Chair of Meetings and Conferences Committee for the 2008-2009 IEEE AP ComSoc. Jia-Chin Lin has won many awards, including the Dr. Wu Da-You Research Award from the National Science Council (NSC), Executive Yuan, the 2003 Award for Outstanding Faculty from the Ministry of Education, the Young Scientist Award issued by URSI, the Outstanding Researcher Award from the IEEE ComSoc APB, the Investigative Research Award from the Pan Wen Yuan Foundation, and the Taiwan Merit Scholarships Program from Executive Yuan. Professor Lin also won the 2009 Ten Outstanding Young Persons Award of Taiwan. Jia-Chin Lin is a Fellow of the IET and a Senior Member of IEEE.
