Cooperative Cognitive Networks

The goal of this special issue is to gather recent research contributions and advances in cooperative cognitive networks (CCNs). More specifically, this special issue aims at fostering innovative and significant research on the design, implementation, usage, and evaluation of CCNs. For submission, it is encouraged not only results and insights obtained from working implementations but also those obtained from simulations and theoretical analysis. This special issue will also bring together those leading researchers and developers in fields of system design, performance analysis and application/implementation of CCNs.

    Throughput analysis of transmit-nulling SDMA with limited feedback

    We recently proposed a precoder codebook for a transmit-nulling space-division multiple access (TN-SDMA) to share spectrum with existing wireless services. Since a portion of the spatial subspaces of a multian...

    Multi-antenna transmission for underlay and overlay cognitive radio with explicit message-learning phase

    We consider the coexistence of a multiple-input multiple-output secondary system with a multiple-input single-output primary link with different degrees of coordination between the systems. First, for the unco...

    Cooperative overlay secondary transmissions exploiting primary retransmissions

    We introduce an overlay cooperative cognitive radio scheme, in which the secondary network transmits only during the retransmissions of the primary network. The secondary network makes use of multiple relays i...
