The popularity of smart phones and other mobile devices has brought about major expansion in the realm of wireless communications. With this growth comes the need to improve upon network capacity and overall user experience, and game-based methods can offer further enhancements in this area.

Game Theory Framework Applied to Wireless Communication Networks is a pivotal reference source for the latest scholarly research on the application of game-theoretic approaches to enhance wireless networking. Featuring prevailing coverage on a range of topics relating to the advanced game model, mechanism designs, and effective equilibrium concepts, this publication is an essential reference source for researchers, students, technology developers, and engineers.

This publication features extensive, research-based chapters across a broad scope of relevant topics, including potential games, coalition formation game, heterogeneous networks, radio resource allocation, coverage optimization, distributed dynamic resource allocation, dynamic spectrum access, physical layer security, and cooperative video transmission.

Topics Covered

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

  • Coalition Formation Game
  • Cooperative Video Transmission
  • Coverage Optimization
  • Distributed Dynamic Resource Allocation
  • Dynamic Spectrum Access
  • Heterogeneous Networks
  • Physical Layer Security
  • Potential Games
  • Radio Resource Allocation

Reviews and Testimonials

Computer scientists and engineers from Asia, Europe, the US, and Saudi Arabia present 16 articles on the application, mechanism design, and challenges of game theory frameworks for wireless communication network techniques and issues. They describe game theory models, including complete information-supported games of non-cooperative potential games, cooperative coalition games, and games with incomplete information; heterogeneous small cell networks and interference mitigation with power control and allocation, game theory-based radio resource optimization, and more.
