    A Unified Approach to Optimal Opportunistic Spectrum Access under Collision Probability Constraint in Cognitive Radio Systems

    We consider a cognitive radio system with one primary channel and one secondary user, and then we introduce a channel-usage pattern model and a fundamental access scheme in this system. Based on this model and...
