The use of game theoretic techniques is playing an increasingly important role in the network design domain. Understanding the background, concepts, and principles in using game theory approaches is necessary for engineers in network design.

Game Theory Applications in Network Design provides the basic idea of game theory and the fundamental understanding of game theoretic interactions among network entities. The material in this book also covers recent advances and open issues, offering game theoretic solutions for specific network design issues. This publication will benefit students, educators, research strategists, scientists, researchers, and engineers in the field of network design.

Topics Covered

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

  • Bandwidth Management
  • Cognitive Radio Network Control Problem
  • Economic Approach for Network Management
  • Game Paradigm for Wired Networks
  • Network Resource Allocation
  • Network Routing Applications
  • Power Control for Wireless Networks

Reviews and Testimonials

Computer scientist Kim reviews recent research into game theory techniques that are playing particularly important and distinctive roles in the network design domain. He provides examples of algorithms that will give readers the opportunity to understand clearly how to get game theory solutions for specific design issues. He begins with the fundamental ideas of game theory, then looks at game theory applications for network management issues, and advanced game paradigms case studies. The material should be useful to undergraduate and graduate students in computer science and information technology.
